Here is another collection a friend picked up for me from a guy who said his family owned a hobby store in Alaska in the '60s and '70s. Some lookslightly raced, some look built to sell at store. Most of his personal stuff he gave to friends when he joined military. Box in pictures was his. There was a whole big box full of store inventory of parts from about all the big companies. Two new Lancer Ferrari F-1s, #980 and a King Cobra #960. If something you need a better look at I can try to add pics.

I have friends do that, too. LOL.

 

My buddy owns the last mom and pop type hobby store in our area. He has all kinds of old timers bring him old model collections and every now and then this stuff. I am lucky, he lets me have first dibs. Great six-lane figure eight road course in store built by Jim Silknitter (Silky Tracks). He's been involved with hobby around Omaha since late, late fifties. Still builds tracks when body lets him.

I also ran AMT stamped brass chassis. They worked very well for an inline. Before that I ran a lot of Dynamics

die cast chassis. They were easy to work on. By the time the Champion brass chassis came along, I was doing

real cars so I don't have any of those. I would like to get a few, though.
