Here is a really nice Hoffman's plywood track box. I think I outbid a bunch of guys on ePay for it.

It's in really great condition and all original from the '60s. I applied what I thought were appropriate decals.
 
Best offer by 11 PM Eastern time, Wednesday, November 8, 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 and insurance, if desired. This auction is only for a week and once it is completed, Greg will invoice the winning bidder promptly. Once the remittance is received, I will ship the box from Michigan, rather than incur the cost of shipping it to Greg so he could re-ship it.

Tom's pics don't show the bottom compartment clearly and rather than ask him to take another pic, let me just bring in a image from a Slotblog post from 2014.

 

This is the first page of the Hoffman's box flyer from some date in the '60 (since it mentions slot cars). This has got to be a pretty rare piece of paper, as I have never seen one before and based on a Google search, Slotblog is the only place on the web where you can see an image of it.
