Those Indy cars may be "Best" models. They did four-five early Indy cars. I have a couple of them. They are small, probably close to true 1/24.

Thanks, Matt - that rings a bell! 

 

Thought I was pretty familiar with the model companies of the early '60s, but I had never heard of Premier, Best, and several others!

These show up on Ebay pretty regular.    I thought maybe they would make neat slot cars, but the wheel and tire size would be hard to duplicate and probably just be a top heavy "shelf queen".
