    Here is a HO Marx Corvette. Most people think 1962 was the 1st year of Marx HO cars but it was not. This car was made in 1961. The difference is the brass gear and the Blade guide not a pin guide. These 1961 slot cars with the blade guide are rare. Also early HO 1961 Marx trak had brass rails...

It uses the same controllers as the HO set they made. While not in mint shape the set does not come up very often...

There are over 7,000 cars,760 sets,books,catalogs,buildings,figures,etc. The largest collection of pre 1960 sets and cars in the...
