Hi Ian,

The Rally of Japan car IS a genuine MRTE car look at the door, it is fibreglass, you can tell because it is rounded where the steel door isn't, the hubs are different too. Also clearly shown is the fuel filler in the rear quarterlight.

You can see on the other No 9 car (Fabian's), that it has steel doors and a std RX dash with instrument cowl, where the works cars had a flat fabricated dash.
