Random eBay buy, and this car is impressive! Any idea how old this is, or anything else about it? Armature is marked "Int 15." 
 
I'll have to say this is the best handling car I've ever had, you have to be totally asleep at the trigger to deslot it.  You can actually hear the floating body mount lift on braking, it's totally predictable without the slightest tendency to flip.  
 
I don't know if it just suits my track or it would be this impressive anywhere, but I need more of these!

Garry, these chassis show up quite often on eBay, sometimes as complete cars, other times as rollers, even as bare chassis occasionally.

This is an early 1990's boxstock/group 15/group 12 car. I have two of these frames I used to race. When they are straight and have good solder joints they are an easy to drive car. They were on the heavy side but a good entry level car on a "driver's" track.

 

The motor is from the same time frame, .513 diameter armature 50 turns of 29 wire on a .440 long stack. The can is a Proslot/Champion probably with Proslot magnets.

 

If memory serves me gearing should be 10:38 or 10:39 with .750 diameter tires.

Bob is correct. I raced this this chassis at the '92 Nats in Boxstock (G12 arm).

That was my main class back then as well. I still have the car I ran back then.  The current "retro pro" class is fairly similar except for less aero downforce.

Nice find of a "mint in box" car

That is true what they are stating chassis was a very good handling chassis in its day we've been using them around here as beginner group f cars I have about 15 of those brand new still in the package and other style is quite similar
