Scrummaging through my old slotcar stuff, I found an Old Ferrari 196 body. When I was a kid my first slot car tack was an Eldon set and the old Ferrari always was one of my Favorites, The kit had 2 chassis and four body shells
The only one that remains is the Ferrari so I thought I would fix it up. Historically this was Ferrari's first car with the engine behind the driver, so for that matter alone it is a nice model to have.
It has a brass chassis now, new paint, and a set of Fly wire spoke wheels. It is decorated to duplicate the Ferrari driven by Pedro Rodríguez in the Floria Targa in 1961? As far as scale goes, it measures out pretty decent to the prototype, but the Eldon offerings of the day were pretty crude. I never attempted to "fix" anything about the car, and left it in all its 1960's Glory. Still it is a rugged slot car body and I doubt you could damage this thing. The wheels for this were delivered yesterday so I trued them and put them on this morning. Runs pretty good, and I am happy to have some vintage stuff to run as well.
