The cockpit version of Pole Position was shipped in 2 pieces that were screwed together on location. It had little in the way of decoration inside, but the white exterior was covered in detailed race car scenes that were much more attractive than those on the upright. Unlike the upright version which only had a gas pedal, the cockpit version had both a gas pedal AND a brake pedal.
