I have been extremely fortunate in having been generously given a collection of 1/32nd scale Ferrari slot cars.

There are 47 cars in the collection and each one has been sprayed with the same Ferrari red paint and silver painted headlight covers. Even the drivers have been identically painted! Some are Scalextric or other production cars; some are 'kit-bashed' and some are scratchbuilt.

Some pictures of the entire collection, more-or-less grouped by type:-













I need help to indentify some of them, please!

A scratchbuilt Ferrari 350 P4 Can Am with a vacuum-formed body. Can anyone identify the body manufacturer?

Fascinating collection Russell, and a nice gift. "One track mind" comes to mind...

Let's see if I can answer some of your questions:

- the vac-form 350 is probably a Lancer

- #7-1: late model Riko chassis and motor, not sure about body, maybe Airfix or Palmer?
7-2: Eldon Ferrari (common model, in Selectronic and regular versions
7-3 - Strombecker chassis, looks like a resin body - Strombecker did do coupé and spyder versions of the Dino, but if this is one, it's been reworked.

8-4: Riko ditto
8-5 - Strombecker chassis, unsure of body
8-6 - Policar

9-7 - Airfix/MRRC
9-8 - MRRC chassis/motor, maybe a Super Shells body?
9-9 - Policar again (maybe Polistil, don't have ref docs with me and their ranges are a bit confused, or maybe it's me...)

10 - P5 Policar (there were also some Spanish versions of these Policar cars...)
11 - Stabo I think, or other German brand, with Buhler motor of course
12 - Revell home set chassis, with possibly Revell or Highway Pioneers body (unless it's resin).

Hope that helps.

The number 90 car-the open P4 Spyder is a Bandai kit. It originally came with a clockwork motor! Obviously,it now sits on a Strombecker chassis. Quite a mixed bag....

#3 is the Bandai/Paramount plastic model
#11 probably GGN
#8 definitely Supershell body
#1 is either the Palmer kit or the Hong Kong toy copy of the Monogram (Lucky toys?)
#12, if it is resin then Auto Hobbies copy of the Highway Pioneer/Revell

I am intrigued by #36 in the top set of pictures, the only one I can't recognise, any chance a chassis picture.

Nice collection by the way.

Many thanks for all your help so far -- it's much appreciated!

Here you go, Joel. I have absolutely no idea what make the body is nor the manufacturer of the highly modified chassis:-





Kind regards,

Russell

Circuit 24 Panhard disguised as a Ferrari perhaps?

Great collection, I wish someone would give me their collection of Ferrari's..... Joel


Thanks,

Pete
