Rummaging through some boxes at home today and came across this:

Sadly, there is no body, front wheels, rear tyres or partial lead wire.

 

Are these bits and pieces of any value to anyone?

The rear wheels are probably worth more than the rest.

Throw together a Tamiya body and finish it out. If the other club members like it you can start a Vintage class. I heard there's a guy around here pretty good at winding hot arms for those old motors. :D

There are many Revell Halibrand wheels on eBay right now.  The fronts were free wheeling and there are two sets including knock offs and front axles on eBay right now.

A couple days ago a pair of those wheels went for $106, don't ask me why.  Also the original gear set you have is valuable, that pinion gear is impossible to replace.

Replace the lead wires with originals, front wheels and tires, build the car is what I would do.
