Default ID needed on this one

Hi Everyone, This is my first posting... I'm trying to identify the car and body, any help would be much appreciated. My own guess is a Yankee car, body is unmarked and I have no clue. Only sure thing is it's 1/8 scale (or...?). Thanks! ElPorco

It looks like a Cox Baja Beetle, or a Kyosho Field Baja Beetle.

It doesn't run, too many parts are missing... The engine (Picco 3.5) seems almost new, though. The body doesn't fit (wheel openings too small and wheelbase seems too short, too...) and there are no attachment holes in it nor any attachment posts on the chassis. My thought was to send the chassis/body off to a new owner and keep the engine. Grtz

Hi, I think it's too big to be either. And the Cox was hard plastic body shell and a Babe Bee engine. I'm looking for one of those, actually. Gtrz.

It is a version of the Yankee enduro 8 4x4s.

NASA isn't that sharp, lol.  It is neat.  What are the plans for it?
