Another difference I noted was that the body for sale has the marker light indents under the headlights/bumperettes, where the JJ cars that I see do not.

Also the bumperettes are mid "grill" on this car and on the JJ car, sit much lower. Unless as was said there are several JJ car bodies.

Here's a cool page I came across on JJ:

This is a deal I put together for Jungle with Briggs Chevrolet. I talked Danny Zack, the owner, into giving Jungle (and this was a big deal back then) $2,000 and a identically painted Camaro tow car for his name on the back quarter panel. Circus did the paint on both cars (note no Revell on the front quarter that came mid-season). I had many opportunities to drive it on the street and it was a blast! After the season Briggs took the car back and it sat in their showroom for a while, I believe that Zack still has it in his personal collection.

Ok after a closer reading of the ad, looks like this body matches the body of "a" Red JJ car driven by Pete Williams for Jungle (I should have read the ad closer).



From the site above, the PW JJ car does seem to me to match the same body type of the one for sale.


Quote:
In 1970 JJ's red Camaro was added to Fleer's AHRA Official Drag Champs series of baseball card sized trading cards. Back side of card stated "Jim Liberman earned the nickname "Jungle Jim" when he was handling the wild, early Funny Cars since driving them was like taming a wild animal... Always a showman, Jim puts down some of the best smoke filled burnouts around and performances to match." Amen to that!!! (Card courtesy of the Attic Collection, photo by Jon Asher)

So, it seems that the blue car was based on a 72 Camaro and the Red car a 70.
