Here is a very rare HO scale set made by Kogure . I know of only 1 other complete set . This is 1 of 2 different HO sets made by Kogure. They of course made slot cars in other scales. In this set you have 2 rare cars. A 1965 Honda S 800 and a 1964 Nissan Silvia. The cars are well detailed. I also show photos of the instruction booklet. By the way the box cover shows a Toyota 800 instead of a Honda 800,strange. Kogure also made a Toyota 800 in 1/24th scale. Enjoy

Cute cars... the Honda S600 ("800" for export) was a great little car. The Nissan Silvia was a Michelotti design from Italy and was a popular car in Japan in the mid 1960s. Kogure was one of te most prolific slot car manufacturers in Japan in the "Classic Era". Their HO chassis is obviously inspired by American stuff...

Sankyo made a 1/24 scale slot car kit of it in 2 versions.

Good looking set Bernard, and the cars are nicely done.

The chassis seems to be a copy of the Tyco - is it worm drive also, or a multiple geartrain like Atlas?
