Mat Irvine: The Round 2 Jawbreaker, subtitled as a 'Wild Rail Dragster' is one of these reissues, this one from the MPC list. The car may be listed as a WRD, but if you want to be picky, it’s actually an ‘Altered,’ as it features the semblance of a stock car body, in this case from a 1932 Ford Victoria. This would mean running in a different class, though if you leave off the bodywork, then yes, it could run as a top-class fuel dragster.
Front bodywork (below) with the Victoria (also affectionately known as the ‘Vicky’) body, and rear spoiler.
When fully assembled, the Round 2 MPC Jawbreaker becomes an ideal subject to use in a diorama. If you can, try using the old AMT Drag Strip Accessories set, which will provide the contemporary equipment needed for a convincing display.
