Default Need help selecting 1:10 scale chassis.

I want to build a specific RC car. The only body I could find was from Delta Plastics. It’s a 1/10 scale 1965 Shelby Daytona coupe. The wheel base is 260 mm. Is this a common size? Can anyone recommend a rolling chassis w a 260mm wheelbase.
I don’t race, I just like the 65 Daytona coupe so less expensive is better.
thank you
Thomas Davis

Are you talking about this body here:
https://deltaplastikusa.com/products...0783c381&_ss=r

They clearly state that it fits any 1/8 buggy:

one of the least expensive cars that I can find available right now which is compatible would be this:
https://www.redcatracing.com/Blackou...category=18367

Only problem is that it comes with SCT wheels and you might want to get a GT8 just so that it looks more scale... if it were me I'd get this:

“Delta Plastik USA is happy to announce the new Shelby Cobra GT for 200mm 1/10 scale.. It is very aerodynamic making it perfect for high speeds. 203mm width and 260mm wheelbase”

if anyone could recommend an RC car chassis that will fit I’d be grateful.

This should be close enough in size to meet your needs:
