Kit built a jeep or race car. Roughly from the late 80's/early 90's.

Car had a rear differential, wishbone suspension and rack and pinion steering.

Very similar to http://www.technicopedia.com/8865.html but I don't think they are the same.

Photo in its current state might have modifications from the original plans though.

Update here's it rebuilt, couldn't be bothered finding some pieces in the correct colours though...

Searching for sets containing both 1x6 technic bricks and 6x10 plates in red quickly yields set 8865.

Instructions for set 8865

Note that this set came with instructions for two different builds; you seem to have the remnants of the alternate build (seen on the bottom of the cover for the instructions booklet).

See also the back of the cardboard box from this eurobricks review:

  • That was as close as I could find too, just since the windscreen/roof was different (possibly modified though) and a few other discrepancies made me wonder if there was a similar kit I didn't see... Thanks for the help!

  • Will see how I go rebuilding it now I have the instructions (and hopefully enough of the parts!)
