I came across this slot car.

I thought it would be easy to figure out who made this because it has rear tires that have LIONEL stamped on them !

I would be wrong I think !

The LIONEL1/32 Indy type slots I've seen look nothing like this and are BRM and another !

The give away in figuring who made this is the fact the 2 guide pins are plastic that stick up from the chassis !

So who is it....and what is it ?

Thanks !

That might be the set car  for the Monogram 1/32 race set that had the Lotus and Ferrari in it.   I've never had any of those, but I think that is probably what this car is.   I think that was the "Watkins Glen" race set.

Bingo - home set Monogram F1 - has less detail than the kit version with the metal frame.  Someone tried the Lionel tires for fit.
