Just received a nice lot of Jouef cars from Phil Smith.
All bar 3 are from the 1970`s.
Bathed the bodies in soapy water, then polished them with Autoglym paint restorer, followed by Autoglym resin polish.
All the running gears just needed a clean & light oil.
Really happy with them, thanks Phil.
Cheers,
Kev.

Kev, what's the difference between an Alpine 3000 and an Alpine A210? I've always loved the look of the cars, but know nothing about them and Google doesn't help when I search for "Alpine 3000" (I get a list of sub-woofers!)

It's a model crying out to be made to modern standards - several liveries available. How about it, Scalextric/SCX/Carrera?

Hi Rob.
99% of the models continued with the same motors during the 70s.
A very few cars were released with Mabuchi motors just prior to the end of Jouefs production run in 1980- very expensive now!!
Cheers

Thanks Stig.
Really the best way to get a Jouef car is to be patient on the old Ebay.
Between 1964 & 1968 Playcraft Toys(Mettoy) marketed them throughout the English speaking world as Champion Motor Racing , so I should imagine that there should be a few kicking about in your neck of the woods.
Cheers,
Kev.
