Looking for pictures to paint an RJ Speed RC Legends car like it. Also, what body would resemble it the most. Thanks in advance.

According to speedway productions it was a 34 Ford with a small block Chevy motor that he was known in. And it's Jim Magill.

My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.

Was actually looking for a picture of the first coupe, the GMC powered one. I believe it was black and white.

Here is a picture of Jim's car with another famous driver posing in front of it. The kid in the red shirt is Racin' Ralphie Spithaler. You are probably looking at the 1934 Ford coupe as the closest Legend body. The other picture is my Ralph Quarterson Montag Coupe that I made from a Slash SCT.

Yes,the was Jim's first #711 car.  After he and his dad sold it Henry Long drove the car for a couple of years about 1966-67. I have a photo of the car when Long was driving it.
