I've seen this casting listed as a C4, but it looks more like a C5 to me. Thoughts?
Good observations on those details. Honestly I don't think the sides of these cheap Suntoys castings do much to help us identify the models. They're pretty much devoid of any detail, presumably just to make casting them simpler and cheaper.found another casting number for a C5 as 9802000 but not a visual example of one yet. And I looked more closely at the hood and headlight detail on the one you have posted here above and it does match more closely to the design of a C5 over the C4 body. On the C4 there are no hood lines laterally on the top surface and the head light openings are more rectangular. As would the hood line across the nose be a straight squared line that carries down the side to the body mid line.
So from above this casting is closer match to a C5 for me again now, but from the front lower nose, sides and rear is still a C4 body shape to me. Especially with the circle shaped tail light details.
So I am leaning to call this one a C5 over the C4 now with the front and rear top details being greater in number than the lack of other front, side and rear details for the C4.
how much is this car worthEven though the rear window is to small in comparision to the 1:1 the rear deck lid gap line and window countures are the only portion of the casting that reminds me of a C5.
If you visually remove the outline of the rear deck - it turns back into the C4 body shape for me.
