Best guesses from the peanut gallery:

 

RJR Boxstock/Group 12 chassis (Combo steel and wire; integral guide tongue, attached front weights, vintage late 1990s)

 

Armature .510" diameter. 18 turns of 24-1/2 gauge wire (use a small pinion).

Yes, as Bob said, an RJR chassis. Early '90s. We raced them in Gp 20 with the weights cut off at Fishkill Raceway. :)

With that wind and no tag, both are indications that's an open class arm.

Today it's unusual to see an "open" wind on a .510" diameter, "long" arm for a C-can. That's probably a drag racing arm.

 

I don't know what size pinion is on it, but I think you might want a 6t or 7t in 64p gears. I have a '90s vintage 18t25 arm in a cobalt setup that's still incredibly fast on 6/39 gears.

Bill, I think that's an old ar in that motor. .510" dia. was a popular dia. in the 70s, 80s, & maybe 90s. The Proslot/Champion can might be quite old too.
