The earlier or the sets which will be called #1 came out in 1962 making it probably the 1st Japanese slot car set made. You can see the influence of the early VIP sets both by the metal track and the use of the 1/32nd scale Austin Healey Bug Eyed Sprite. The later set put out the next year had several changes ,the major ones being the car contacts and the use of very heavy rubber ( not plastic ) track. Again , could they have been influenced by the British,this time Scalextric ? Both of these sets are near impossible to find. I'm sure there must be some out there but I have never seen anyothers in collector's hands or for sale. Plus another unquie thin about these 2 sets are they are the only slot car sets ever made using the Austin Healey Sprites. The 1st photo shows the box cover of the 1962 set. The 2nd shows the cover of the 2nd set.The next is the contents of the 1st set. The next is the contents of the 2nd set. Next is the metal track of the 1st set. Next is the black rubber track of the later set.Next is the photo of the earlier battery box with the on off switch. The next is the battery box of the later set. Here is an unusual thing. You can see unlike the the battery box from the 1st set there are 2 switches. Why ? One is for 1 1/2 volts,the other is for 3 volts ! Next is the car from the 1st set (without the decals,drivers head,and roll bar ). The next is the later car. The next photo shows 2 chassis. The one on the left is the earlier one and the one on the right is the later. The next photo shows the later top chassis and the earlier on the bottom . Notice the earlier one has metal screw on wheels and the later has push on plastic. The next photo shows the undersides of the 2 chassis. The left one is the later one and the right one is the earlier one. Notice the change in the contacts because of the changes in the track. Then the decal sheet. Then the next 2 photos are of the instructions for the later set and the next 2 for the earlier set. The last photos show the earlier car assembled.

Bernard:

Are you using a PC to post? Or an iPhone?

On my PC posting a photo is quite straightforward. If you're using a PC, perhaps I can help you with the issue?

Where will you be posting then?

Many of us look forward to, and follow your continued adventures.

It takes a little while getting used to the new system Bernard, but in the end seems just as good as the old one, and better in some ways. I see you were able to post the pics in the end.
I hope you"ll reconsider and stay with us.
Let me know if I can help,
Don
