Hi all!

Found these two aluminum chassis. Looks like they are stretched out to 1/24 scale.

I haven't a clue to who made these!Do you???

Many thanks,

Ted

Those will work as well, but the posts I mentioned are the 1967 and 1968 Dynamic catalogs.

The one in the foreground is for a 36D can drive as evidenced by the taller axle bosses, beefier rear motor boss and larger front brass retainer. They are both basic oilite type.
 
The other one is a 16D can drive.
 
Both have full length tongues (get your mind out of the gutter) which is good, with one having the slightly harder to find brass version. 
 
Wish Dynamic put part #s on their motor carriers.  :dash2:

For some reason the link to page 2 of the thread was missing the first time I looked at it. I looked for it several times so I'm pretty sure it wasn't showing up. So I thought the thread only had 50 posts and you got your numbers confused. NOW I can see page 2 and the posts you're referring to. So never mind! :)

The brass tongues have been sold through Prof Motor lately and I think R-Geo has made batches of them in the past few years.

You can count on the brass tongues to bend on impact! We get them from Prof Motor and usually end up soldering a custom brass piece underneath to keep them from bending.

I was referring to OEM Dynamic tongues which this is one of.

The die cast tongues always broke at the guide flag eye. I have lots of broken ones. The brass ones are much stronger (if they are the ones from the '60s which are 1/16 inch thick brass stock).

Also, if you had to cut a die cast tongue at the motor box end to fit a 1/32nd car, they tended to spread open due to the flat head screws. The brass tongues allowed you to solder in a reinforcing bridge piece to keep the screws from spreading the sides of the tongues and coming loose.
