Hi all!
 
I have two drop arm chassis 1/24, both are aluminum. They are not marked, can't figure out who made them back in the day!
 
I suspect that the brain trust of information here will come up with some great guesses!
 
Many thanks,
 
Ted

One on the left is an MDC, for 16D motor and hypoid gears. 

 

Not sure about one on right, looks similar to a few others, but not positive identification for now...

Speedway, if I recall correctly. We have a few inside their original packing at the LASCM. I will confirm when there.

Yep, just found my chassis with its card and it's a Fast Wheels GT100 for 36D motors. 

 

Yours is missing the rear motor cradle, a U-shaped piece which came over the top of the motor and screwed into those four holes in front of the rear axle...

A friend of mine sent me these of a car he's working on. Looks like Don got it first, but at least I have pictures.

:D
