Nutley 01.jpg This chassis was in a recent eBay lot..  It is a very-well-built chassis with a Team Nutley center section.  The shiny solder on the front axle is from me doing an adjustment.  Tony P. has confirmed that this is NOT one of his or Emmott's, so I'm wondering if anyone has a clue.  Maybe even who "Fred" might be.  Any info appreciated.  If not, just enjoy a really well-constructed gem.

Chris, you have a fine looking chassis there. Unfortunately, I'm not much help identifying it. but I do have a question. The motorbox appears to fit a C-can rather than a full size 16D can. Would that be so? I also notice your chassis is plumbered on the rails ahead of the front axle. I would have expected that design to have included a motor mounting bracket, yet yours is solder-in, a feature that came later with plumber on the droparm. On a humorous side, that 'Fred' signature looks like my dad's, but he's been gone 11 years & never touched my slot cars.

Fred Strauss? Fred Correnti?

Just some general observations. 

 

This is a very early '70's vintage chassis-'70,'71. or '72.  The reason I say very early is that it uses a screw and washer flag set up.  The use of flag nuts would be happening very shortly. The flag is a REHco orange Jet Flag.  Also would be an early user of 3/32 axles.

 

Definitely for a "C" can or "Green" can as they were referred to at the time.

Definately not a Nutley chassis, just an independent builder using the commonly available, at the time, Nutley drop arm.

 

Waaay to sloppy for a TonyP build too!

 

Probably 70-71 period, plumber on the rails were still being used by very few.

What is the name engraved on the drop arm?  Fred?

Thanks for the responses so far.  Did not mean to mislead anyone -- I added the guide flag, but it seemed period appropriate.  Yes, Bill. C can fits -- B and D do not.

 

As I look to restore this chassis to running order, are 64 pitch gears correct for the time?  I'm assuming an open arm in a C can would be the ticket, or would this kind of chassis be run with Group 22?

Faas 64 pitch brass spurs would have been available in the early 70's.  In my opinion, either an open arm or a Grp. 20/22 arm would be appropriate. I ran both types of arms in the same chassis back then, even using the same setups. I built a special .020 thin 20 setup, but it didn't work on a blue king. All it did was blow arms & burn my fingers. :)
