Hi All!

I have stumbled across some Craigslist finds I might be interested in.
But I can't figure out who made the Indy car?
The hot rod body is cool and another Indy type body.
Anybody know who made these back in the day?

Many thanks,

Ted

don't know anything about the hot rod, nor who made ANY of them. The white body, # "X", is a Honda RA272 body(1964/1965), the other white body slot car is a BRM F1 car, around 1964.

So far I know who did NOT make the running slot car  !

COX, Revell, BZ. They all have a chassis showing hen you flip them over, not this clam shell sort of body !

Pretty sure that's a K&B Cooper.    The vac bodies are just over the counter bodies painted by some 14 year old kid.   The sedan is probably some issue by Pactra, they did a few different hot rod style bodies.   Not much collectability in this lot.   It comes down to buying it because you like it.

The white vac body of the Honda f1 might be a Ranalli body.

 

On second thought, looks a little too detailed for a Ranalli, more likely it's Lancer's #213
