Good Day Folks!

 

I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome, and helping me out with my questions.  Can someone please help me identify the chassis below?  I tried to do some research, but was unsuccessful, I even watched a somewhat helpful video on YouTube, but the presenter kinda took it for granted that me has a beginner should already know the information.  That being said, his other videos are very helpful, and are a joy to watch, has I learned a ton.

Looks like the standard O or HO chassis to me.

Aurora A/FX "4 gear".

I'm guessing it came out somewhere between 1972 and 1974.

Thank You, that's what I thought to, so I bought a 4 Gear tune up kit, along with a new chassis for another body, but the pick-up shoes appear to be a different width, and the new chassis also has two round magnets.  Should I abandon the old chassis, since it also has a bent from axel, and just order another full chassis for the other body I have, or go forward and tuneup this one? 

 
BTW, the 2 bodies are a Dodge and Ford Van.

Your chassis is an original long wheelbase Aurora 4-gear. The other in the photo with the little round traction magnets is a reproduction by Autoworld. The spare parts are compatible.
