Just picked up a box of slot cars and noticed this chassis. I believe it is from the late '70s or early 80's. Motor has a hot rewind armature but the brass chassis is thin with no markings. It looks to be factory made. I do not think it is a Phaze but maybe someone will Identify it.

Probably a Parma Brasskar.

Champion had their own version, also.

Looks like they also had a full pan version.

A few companies made these, Parma and Champion being the ones you usually saw. They were indeed run

with Mura X-12 motors, and as I recall we classified them as C-1.

Most C-1 cars by the early 1990s  used wire main frames instead of the brass centers, still using side pans.   After that the laser and EDM spring steel frames replaced them.  Todays we call it open group 12, Euro-12, or GT-12 for scale bodies without wings.
