Hi all.

I have these two slot car chassis,they came to me in a box of slotcar stuff a while back.

Can anyone shed any light?

Year,model,motor etc

Both look in great condition.

One has a intricate brass plate, rod/tubing frame.

Other looks like pressed aluminium.This one has side clips for the laxan shells i presume

Can not see any makers stamp on them.

Thanks for having a look,here's some pics



Alloy chassis









Brass chassis









Thanks for your time in advance.

Hi.

I looked at them when i found them...

There hardened but not split,they along with the rear gears look kind of brittle with age i have to admit.

The rear tires are well dry though.

Motors run well on them considering there an old bird now.

Not really my cup of tea.

The aluminum chassis is commonly known as the " offset" chassis and both chassis appear to have Revell wheels . The brass tube one even has the correct knock-off nuts which are a blind hole for the front axle and open for the rear. The offset was typically used for RTR cars , vac bodies of Ford GTs and similar cars. The brass tube one was sold seperately not sure if it was ever used for any RTRs.

I had the brass chassis in a semi-built up Ford Genie from Revell, so yes they were sold with their first 1/24 RTR cars - quickly replaced by the aluminum model however.
