Please see John Harris post #1 for more info regarding the man.
Today we have a cute little 1/32 Cheetah. Clear body by? Monogram chassis. Chassis has a hand made pan which serves to stiffen it at the rear axle area as well as provide a rear body mount. Ball bearings soldered in at both axles. Motor is an early blind bearing case ( maybe Cox? ) with a Simco endbell and hand rewound arm. Case is hand marked 67 and 61. Dual loop lead wire in a neat little clear protector. Front and rear wheels are Revell.
Carb area was left clear and you can see the arm spinning. Cool
Gave it a very lite cleaning. Did not want to change any of the original tooling marks. Like some old broad I may give it a tumble some day
