An ad I just picked up here in France, for a Bobsled set by the Italian manufacturer Polistil, under the Dromocar brand (used for their smaller scale cars). Very much kid oriented, since it was in Tintin magazine, pitched to the 7-12 age bracket... Nice graphics. The set is relatively rare too.

A friend just e-mailed this to me, and I thought I'd share the image. It's from 1966, published in the Rochester, NY newspaper....

Hey Guys, I'm searching for some Obscure Advertising for  Marx HO Slot Cars. I collect all the pre 1970 HO brands, and have a fondness for Marx, since it was my Very first HO Slot car. Anyway, It's easy to find full page adverts for Marx HO(and 1/32) Slot Sets, but I've only seen one small snippet of an old advert  from a 1964 Sears catalog, showing the actual Marx HO cars, and it's hardly worth mentioning. Soooo, do any of you have an advert showing the Marx HO line-up of cars available for a certain year ? I'm going to try and attach the only advert I already have, showing the 1964 Marx HO cars....please help me find better than this !33540559_10209206352034411_4688577125710

Another 1/24 scale company Gar-vic wonder if they ever made HO scale like shown in this ad,

Would love to add to collection if they did? The Doc would know?

Nobody's ever found one. 

 

If it was ever made, it would have been a prototype, and has long disappeared.

I saw this pic from 1963 posted on Twitter,  it's got the Model Motoring / Aurora billboard in the top right corner.  

 

<< Bridgehampton 500 Km GT race, September, 1963. The front row: Ken Miles (No. 98 Shelby American Cobra, pole), Dan Gurney (No. 99 Shelby American Cobra, with Carroll Shelby leaning on his car) and Bob Holbert (No. 97 Shelby American Cobra).
