Yes, the bodies are NON-metal. I'm not sure if it is fiberglass or something else. Apparently these cars sometimes have an issue with the points where the body attaches to the car, and it's NOT a problem on this one.

The owner also told me that the whole bottom drops out the back (it's a rear-engine car) for easy engine and tranny removal.
