Grot chassis ??

Here is yet another strange (to me anyway) chassis from the late 70s, early 80s.
Considering I prefer slot stuff from the early 60s, I am getting rather fond of those signed chassis from the later period of vintage slot,
even though, to me eyes, these are the people who actuallly killed the hobby for about 30 years.

Here the latest find.

I can fix most of the paintwork; but, what was written on the side??? "THIS CAR WAS MADE ?????????????"
If anyone knows, please let me know. (In the meantime, I shall concentrate in fixing the black paint)

And here is the chassis

As ever: If anyone can add any information, they will be most welcome.


PS: Tony: If you have a second edition of your book, can you please include a listing of the various British chassis/motor builders (we know plenty about the US guys, but so little about the UK builders).

Hi Joel
I would say it is definitely an 80's chassis, before that the centre section wasn't pivotted in the middle. Iwas one of those that killed the hobby and still have many like it. The body is a Dodge Daytona and you can still get them from Betta and Classic

Ollie Oliver was another maker of brass and wire chassis's in the 60's/70's, he didn't drive much but loved designing and building. I used some of his chassis's to great effect in the opens at Nordic, He used to engrave a Double O and a smiling cat's face on his chassis's
