Thread: The car that Unique used for the molds

    The car that Unique used for the molds

    This question is primarily directed towards the Weavers (but I'd be impressed if anyone on the forum knows this!!!). What is the CSX number of the car that served as the mold for our cars? A FB poster said Unique cars were way off the mark. If there's a picture I'd be thrilled to see it!

    The original owner of UM used a 427 comp car for the first set of molds, it belonged to a guy in AZ but we didn't know him. The body was longer on 1 side, nose opening was off and so on, remember it was a race car. We took a body from that mold, corrected several problems and added SC flares to the rear fenders. We are on 4th generation molds now.

    When was the 3rd generation body modified into the current 4th generation body?

    Article states body was retooled in 1979 (2nd generation?), again in 1989 (3rd?), so when was 4th generation established?
