Default Original 1987 Tamiya Clodbuster ~ Find...

I just bought this Original 1987 Tamiya Clodbuster,
With the Original Chevy Grill & Tail Gate. ~ Not a bad deal for $100.
The Body had a fair amount of road rash but I sanded them areas before painting.
The Right side corner of the body by the grill was broken and fixed by me.
The tail gate had cracks but I repaired them best I could.
Bent Left side window post I left that as is.
I touched up the grill with silver paint.
Just needs the Back Half of the Chrome Roll Bar to be complete.
And I ordered that part from RPP Hobby.
I Repainted the Body close to the Original Red on the box cover.
The Chassis / Wheels & Tires Are in Vary Good Condition for being 31 years old.

Metal Chassis Brace was added at some point.
It came with the Original 540 Motors & Old school 2 Channel Futaba Receiver & steering servo.
Also came with an Traxxas EVX 3014 ~ ESC ~ But it needs to be re-wired.

Awesome restore! I had a Clod that I bought at a flea market when I was 15. Bought it for $50 and I beat the crap out of it and then threw it in the garbage a year later. Never once did I think it would have been worth anything. I wish I would have been easier on it and saved it.

There is only one thing I wish that I had done before I sold it.
And that was to switch grills with my Clod bodied scx10 ii scaler.
I made the one on my scaler out of a 4x4x4 grill.
It turned out good but the original looked a lot better.
Even with the silver paint touch up.
