Brass Tube Sports Car Chassis
Item: 1/24 scale brass 2-rod chassis
Collector: Jim Allen
Date collected: July 3, 2002
Made by: unknown
Made when: 1967
Notes: 1967 was still a time of experimentation, and brass rod chassis
came in a number of different configurations. Not everyone followed the dominant
Morrissey/Team Russkit parallel rails design theme.
The 26D motor bracket dates the chassis to 1967.
When I first bought this chassis, it had 4 L-shaped mounting brackets and an unusual front bumper,
both of which looked to be added later, by a less skilled solderer. I had the additions removed, restoring the chassis
to what I believe is its original condition. See below.
