I picked these up in a large lot I aquired years ago and have never been able to fully ID them . It is a parts lot I would say thye are maybe 1/54 scale ( smaller than 1/43 but bigger the 1/64) I kinda of remember running across them somewhere on line before but can't find anythis again.
Thank s
Mike

PS NONE of the parts have any kind of ID markings what so ever .

I believe they were made by a company called Penn Line, which was a model train company and I'm pretty sure they were the only slot cars that company ever made.

You guys nailed it. I just googled Penn Line slotcars and found out they were the only slot cars they made and in fact they were so bad that they bankrupted the company !
thanks for your help .

Talk about having a slice of history, That is just to cool. If you can I would clean them up, put them together and display them.

They are Penn Line (can you guess the state they are from?) and the only available set I've seen is an Indy 500 AJ Foyt set with a very young AJ on the box lid. The chassis is molded in Atlas grey and looks like an Aurora A-jet chassis.

Sorry should have been more descript (I knew what I meant)....agree Atlas like but te size and pick-up configuration reminds me or Aurora O Guage stuff.
