Can anyone ID these chassis? I got them in trade and know nothing of them. The one perimeter chassis with no cross support (open) has been cut out, from the looks of it.

Brass 'n Wire looks like a Parma. All wire tri-pod looks like a Int-15 Zap.

If the front axle tube uprights are one piece of wire that loop over the top of the tube, then you have a Parma chassis. If the uprights are two pieces of L-shaped wire, you have a REHCO. The wire tripod does look like a ZAP (Craig Landry) Int. 15, one built  with medium flex. ZAP also built tripods with low flex & high flex too, by moving the location where the center two rails came together. The steel chassis in the upper right corner of your 3rd photo might be a Koford. I've never seen the 2nd steel one in the same photo, but someone on here probably has.

On the chassis to the left, there isn't enough left to identify.

It is basically something for the garbage can.

The other steel car is a copy of a Koford World's car.

Possibly a Parma or a Neat Things.

The one second from the right is a Parma RPM.

The brass chassis is a REHCo. They differ from the Parma and Neat Things by their cross bar on the front.
