Hello to all,
I am new here, but am a long time slot car collector - been quite a while since I actually raced anything. I have a good knowledge of the production cars - Cox, Russkit, etc. But minimal knowledge when it comes to pro racing type chassis designs.
I was referred here by DC-65X, he said this would be the place to get the best information.
Back in September a friend of mine acquired a slot car collection from a North Carolina estate auction, I purchased the entire collection from him "as found". I am just now finding the time to get around to restoring some of these. I have way more chassis than bodies, and most of the bodies that I do have are well beaten.
Here are photos of the chassis top & bottom. I don't think there is anything here of any significance, but I want to be absolutely certain before I go working on them. The only ones that look to be reasonably professional are the 2 on the top left, maybe someone can identify the design or style of the build? The others as far as I know are just projects that will need some serious work - a couple Champion angle winders, a Champion Stock Car Chassis, some modified Dynamic Chassis, Cobras, Ferrets. Also not shown, this guy loved Cox IFC chassis, there are about a dozen of them.
And here are the bodies. The blue Mirage is the only body that is still fully intact, I think it is a Dynamic possibly factory painted, wish it had the interior. Some of the others I would love to find replacements for, but that may be difficult or costly. I think I have them ID'd correctly, please correct me if wrong. The Lotus & Elfin I think are Russkit. The Ford GT & Mclaren I believe are Dynamic handling bodies. The Lancer Honker I already have an NOS replacement for that one. The red one I think is just an old Revell Lola(not concerned with replacing that one). And I am not sure about the Indy F1 style car.
Any information/input on these would be greatly appreciated.
