A couple of fairly good examples of early Scalextric/Triang cars.

I found them here in Switzerland, along with 6 unusual Fly cars but more on those later, the guy I bought them from even hand delivered them, coming to visit over the opening weekend for Swiss Race Bahn, a 4 hour round trip!

They are both catalogue number C0060 according to Slot Car Portal and are Jaguar D Types. Their condition is good to my eye but maybe a more knowledeable collector can fill in some finer details and history for me?

Tyres are already really good, it is the motors that need some TLC.

No laps yet, neither will do one so far

No I am trying to get them to run!

Actually I found you are right
tyres felt OK and looked OK but are perished, as are the crown gears.

I am in the process of getting replacement parts for them now.

"... that yellow Jag with it's little nylon clip in the radiator sticking out like a baby's tooth, rush towards me, breeze past the tip of my nose and shoot off under the flyover. Magical!"

Not only do I run all my old stuff,I send it off to foriegn countries for other people to play with.Other than wheels n tires,the Lotus is totaly stock unaltered,with original motor and gears etc.This was one of my 2003 Marconi entries.

Believe it or not,it didn't come last.
