It is an Airfix/MRRC motor from the Clubman Kit Series in the mid/ late 1960's.

This was the fast motor that was used. The ready built budget cars used a Johnson 111 motor.

The slimline clubman motor shown was a 3 pole, but there is also a 5 pole version which was used in some of the Airfix model trains.

The clubman motor together with the slimline chassis is very usefull for scratch building earlt & mid sixties Grand Prix cars. I have used them in Super Shells Ferrari 158 and Stackpipe BRM. It is a smooth motor and is ideal for home circuit use. A 35-40 ohm controller suits it best.

I agree, the second motor (Mr Material's pics) is derived from the MRRC 4WD motor which pre-dates the Airfix take-over (Yes I was around in those days).

Check the motor bearings as they should be ball bearings.

The motor was very sturdy and was used in the short lived MRRC 1/24 ready built cars with vac-formed bodies. They went out of favour when the high powered Mabuchi motors came along, but still managed to win a major 24 hour race (I think it was in Australia) well after its sell-by date.

They were expensive motors at the time, and I could never afford one on my pocket money.
