DON'T LET THIS ONE GET AWAY!


This kit is one of the most sought-after in the world of slot car collectors. While it is not too difficult to find an assembled model, very few mint, sealed kits have survived and can probably be counted on a few hands worldwide.  Unlike its brothers using the aluminum inline "IFC" chassis, the magnesium chassis and sidewinder motor of this rare version allowed for a full cockpit with fully detailed driver. Unfortunately, most surviving examples were poorly assembled and over-glued by their young owners, making restoration sometimes difficult. The plastic is also sensitive to a chemical reaction from the original tires that changes the pristine white body color in a rather ugly yellow. it is recommended to store the completed models in a well ventilated display.

COX:
The greatest name in vintage slot cars collecting. Cox built the best quality cars and kits from 1964 to 1969 and today's collectors appreciate that quality. Cox sold their cars in RTR and kit form as well as parts. Body and chassis kits, wheels, tires, motors, axles, guides and gears were all sold separately. The kits are especially cherished but the factory-assembled RTR cars in their original boxes are also highly valued. A Blue Chip invesment.
A LITTLE SLOT CAR HISTORY:
Slot cars were born in England, and when in 1957, the first Scalextric toy sets appeared, it did not take long for America to embrace the new hobby. For 7 years, the hobby grew to the point when large American toy manufacturers took the burgeoning hobby by storm and transformed it to the largest form of public amusement in the country. American kits are the best, and other countries took their inspiration from them. Hong Kong and Japan also participated to this and manufactured parts for American slot car kits and RTR produced by some large outfits such as Cox, Monogram and Revell. South American countries such as Mexico, Brazil and Argentina also found inspiration in the United States for their domestic production.

Due to multiple questions I have posted more pictures. There is a few spots where the blister packaging is lifting from the cardboard and one small 1cm crack in the blister by the motor. This will be carefully packaged prior to shipping and put into several size boxes to ensure no damage during shipping. As we all know shipping company's are sometimes rough with packages so this one will be sent with insurance as well as Fragile stickers.
