Here's a pair of unknown Japanese chassis, acquired thanks to a sharp-eyed friend here and our "Japanese Connection"! 

 

As you can see, all that's marked on the box is PM Model-Car Racing Chassis, one box printed green, the other blue. They're very Revell like ladder chassis, but one has added steering in brass or copper or anodized aluminum, and the other an added drop arm, along with sealed plastic bags containing wheels, gears, guide, etc. 

 

Anybody ever see these before, or hear of them?

Are these chassis going to delay PDL's book again? :sarcastic_hand:

Hold on a sec Bill, while I go back to the draft to see if he already covered them! I forgot a lot in the last year...

Don,
I remember the one with the steering front section.
I found and bought the one around 1965 in a hobby section of a large book store in Tokyo.
The chassis didnt run well and I saw nobody else run this chassis at my home raceway close to the book store.

Greetings Haruki-sn and a Happy New Year!

 

I have not seen you post in a long time and it's good to hear from you!

 

Please extend my regards to all of our slot car friends in Tokyo.

 

 

Don,

 

Please pardon me for going off-topic, and a Happy New Year to you also!

 

Thank you.

No problem at all Ernie - a very happy New Year to you too! 

 

Haruki, thanks for your input; I'm amazed that somebody here actually bought one of these chassis! Does the name "Pm" ring any bells? It's not a manufacturer I've ever heard of... of course, it looks like somebody just took some Revell-like chassis and bolted on a few extra parts...
