Hello,

 

I have four boxes of 1/32 Aurora/The Winner's Choice and would like to find out information about it. I do collect Model Motoring items and these were in a box that I purchased. They seem to be brand new, never out of the box.

 

Any information regarding them would be helpful. I cannot seem to find anything online...

They are for Aurora 1/32 tracks, they are from around 1965-66. The boxes explain the rest.

Are they worth anything?  Does anyone even use them? Collect them?  Like I said, I collect the model motoring stuff and have never seen this anywhere...

Not very collectible, maybe worth $10-20. I know of a few who use Aurora tracks but not nearly as collectible as Aurora HO stuff like the ones you collect.

I have a set of the 1/32 Aurora cars. When I was a kid I had a 4x8 table in my bedroom and they were set up on it. I put a lot of laps on that track! :)

It was one of the best 1/32 tracks made in the 60's.       I don't think they ever sold the numbers of tracks that Revell and Monogram did.    It is as good or better than those brands.   The aprons might be worth $10 or more, the bridge $5 or more and the power pack pretty much worth the shipping costs.   I do have a good amount of that track I will probably never use.     Over the years I have picked up enough to build a 4 lane track either  an oval or an "L" design.   Maybe enough straights to do a 14-16 foot long track.       I have learned to quit buying plastic track!!

The 3 lane Scalex is probably the dream for plastic track guys.       You really aren't buying it again are you?     I have seen some being sold from Mi.       I think there was a guy up there with a bunch at one time.    

 

Always good to hear from you.

Yup, I’ve about 70 running feet of it again. If someone in Michigan is selling this track off, that’s too bad. That guy had the best layout and the greatest quantity of that track in the US.
