It's a Parma Mazda, on a Womp chassis.
I believe the RTR cars are coded 414 or 415 dependent on the motor speed, with a letter suffix denoting the body. Parma don't currently list a Mazda in their online catalogue.
If iit has a shallow, chamfered guide and is just about controllable on plastic track, it's a homeset car (414). If it has a deep square guide and appears to be a bit of a screamer, it's the raceway version (415) and won't run on plastic track without the guide trimming.
They are amongst the least desirable and valuable of slot cars to either the hard-body or lexan body fraternities on this side of the pond, though this one's not without a certain gawky charm. They do have an afterlife as the basis for a 16D-powered slotstox car.
Agreed it's not the most atractive or desirable models, but one of only two that i know of representing (however vague) the Mazda RX-7 - the other being the Tyco 1;43rd version (which i picked up at Orpington).
The ref numbers 414 and 415 is this for the chassis rather than the body - do they have ref numbers for the bodies?
This is the only reason i bought it
No doubt in a few months someone will build a superb resin version and i can dispose of the Parma!
