I was sitting with some of the fellas talking about vintage slot cars and parts. My friend John said he a had few things to share. He had a dynamic chassis with a motor, a really KOOL controller, and a rear end that nobody could identify. Can you guys help?3c88c5767b480a6d899a312579624dc3.jpg9bf2ac8ccefaf45712f0105ddc70e68c.jpge018dc15f1842e88c814b5d18832f9b4.jpg

The rear end looks like part of an Ulrich chassis.

The rear end is from the Ulrich suspension chassis, and the motor is a Tradeship Mk-70 with adjustable timing.

And for my 2 cents, here are a couple of photos.  :D

 

The Ulrich independent suspension rear end (complete):

And the Tradeship motor:

The Tradeship motor dates to at least mid 1963, and may have been available earlier than that.

 

The independent suspension rear end piece, part of a chassis Ulrich called the "Challenger", was first advertised in May 1964, so it probably dates to March or April of that year.
