He applied for a patent of the construction (called "Miniature Slot Car") on February 13, 1970, and had
it granted on August 3, 1971 (US patent #3596397).
About the connection between mr Colletti and the Cobra guys, Roy Crawley and Lou Graziano, I have no idea.
That's a question for someone else, closer to this subject in time and space...

Note that the Cobramite bodies were produced by Lancer and were all made of rather thick (for an HO car) butyrate.

Also all of your Cobra Bodies have the Body clip that snapped into the Aurora TJET Chassis. Just remove the original TJET brass top plate clip off your TJET snap this on so it did both top plate clip & body mount. Think this was helded on body with staples.
BAM instant light weight racer.
Dont`t know if they made to many for Cobra Chassis and this was a way to sell extra stock?
Thanks Joe you may have to open Slot Car Museum East
