Hi,

I just got this rather strange & rare set by the Japanese company Yonezawa. The set is a figure 8 with a section coming out of it. The cars are around 1/24th scale Alfa Romeo Alfettas. The cars each have 1 battery in them. There is a tinplate control panel which also has a battery in it for the red button which is a horn. You beep the horn, turn the steering wheel & the car can go off the figure 8 onto the other road. Notice there are tinplate wheels on the outside of the cars & the real wheels are further in. The cars have an on & off switch in the rear windows. This not a race set but an odd electric roadway set. I included a photo of the Alfas next to the Yonezawa electric tether indy car i had put in an earlier topic. It seems Yonezawa made some interesting tinplate electric sets.


Thanks,
Bernard

Hi Don,im guessing the set was made in the late 1950s to early 1960s. I might have some paperwork on it coming in soon.I dont have the original box. Perhaps our expert on tin cars Phillipe could give us more information. I know very little on this subject,only that i have never seen a picture or reference to this set or one like it. Thanks,Bernard
