Courtesy of the F1 Database site (F1DB.de), here is a list of cars that competed in an F1 World Championship Race during 1967. There is at least one error on this list. The Al Pease Eagle in the Canadian GP was powered by a 2.8 litre Climax, not the V12 Gurney-Weslake motor. If you find additional errors, please provide evidence in this thread so corrections may be made.

A question has been raised concerning the two F2-based cars on the list above. I am aware of the F2-class race that ran at the same time as the German GP. Those cars do not figure in the official Entry List nor the Official Results for the Grand Prix. They are not eligible for this proxy. However, both the Lola-BMW at the Nurburgring and the Matra MS7 at Monaco, Watkins Glen and Mexico were ballasted up to minimum weight specs and officially entered as F1 cars in the respective Grands Prix. So, these two cars are legal for this proxy race.
The BMW Lola has been produced as F2 model which was quite similar by Carrera and Stabo many years ago. I have checked the Stabo already. Scale ist somewhere around 1:28. i expect the Carrera Universal in the same range. I will post the results when available. The idea is to use these shells either as starting point or as models for carving a new body. Will be an interesting task.... Best regards, Thomas

I can also offer a few bodies, Honda 273,BRM 261, Lotus 33 ( monogram remould), Brabham BT11, Cooper T81 with long nose, almost ready to mould. Anyone looking at running a Honda 273 be carefull and check the wheelbase as one on the list is took long !
Phil, I have added the Tassie Resin shells to the list above. As for the Honda RA 273, the MRRC shell I have would have no trouble accommodating a chassis with a wheelbase within the specifications. I assume the DArt shell would be similar as I believe it is based on the old MRRC. As for the Penelope Pitlane shell, I cannot comment as I've never held one.
Thomas, I haven't bothered adding the vintage Stabo or Carrera Lola-BMW shells to the list as it sounds they are too far overscale to use without a complete restructuring.

The person you need to contact if you want to acquire the DNQ McLaren is Simon Brereton firstname.lastname@example.org. I have one on order so I cannot comment on how good it is but I have a Ferrari 312T of his and its a good likeness of the real thing.
Exactly right. Simon goes by the name "DNQ" on the UK SlotForum International. I sent him a personal message via that forum, got a quick response and purchased his McLaren M5A and a Tyrrell 006 a couple of years ago but haven't got around to building them yet. I'll snap a picture of the McLaren and post it here.
