I can't remember where I got this Iso-fulcrum chassis which was planned for a hardbody Dodge Ramchargers body but never did end up getting it finished.

The chassis is almost a drop-in for just about any static model 1/24 model car... sedan type.
The motor is by John Havlicek, a built-to-the-hilt Champion 36D.
Beautiful front American mags. Nice rear stocker tires that are still real soft and give great traction.
 
Best offer by 11 PM Eastern time, Friday, November 10, 2017. Note that this car is being sold “AS-IS.”

 

You can post your offer in this thread, or if you wish to remain anonymous, send your offer (stating clearly which car) either in a PM to Cheater here at Slotblog or email him at greg@slotblog.net, and he will post it for you without identification.

 

Please note this NEW REQUIREMENT: So anonymous bids can be posted to the threads before the auction ends, anonymous bids must be sent ONE HALF HOUR before the ending time listed for the car. For example, if the bidding closes at 11 PM Eastern for posted bids, anonymous bids must be received by 10:30 PM Eastern, whether sent via email or PM.

 

Buyer to pay shipping costs. Shipping in most cases will be via USPS “First-Class Package Service,” at least within the US. International shipping will be by method of winning bidder's choice at his expense. A small amount will be added for the cost of packaging materials. If insurance is desired (above any amount automatically included) the additional cost will be at the buyer’s expense. It is not expensive to add insurance to First-Class Package Service (for example, $200 of insurance costs just an additional $3.35).

The center section of this chassis must be a piece from a commercial chassis, based on the stamped holes. Anyone recognize it? Someone suggested it was from an AMT chassis...

Looks like the chassis from the American line kit. With that sportster (or whatever it is/was) shell?

Often came with a K&B Bobcat 36D.

I'm 80% sure the center section is a Riggen.

 

What do I win if I'm right? Edo used to give out cookies...

Well, if you win and come visit me, I'll make another batch of the double-fried Korean hot wings I made last night...

I searched all through my info and Scratchbuilt.com. Came up with nothing.

But Paul's mention of "American Line" yielded THIS.

That's the one. :)

Used to come as a complete kit with 36D, 1/16" front axle and wheels, screw-on motor bracket, etc. PCH used to sell the kits.

No cookie or Korean food for me, then.

But I figure the motor is worth at least $70.
 
I can make that into a real nice car, and have fun doing it. :)

Those 36D American Line kits were a good deal priced at $35-$40. You got the choice of a California Sportsman or '27 Ford roadster body. Those cars were heavier than a 4.5" FCR, but fun to run around.
