I've never seen a jet wheels before...what year is that casting from? plastic or metal chassis? rubber or plastic wheels? what price range?

If that is from the 67-69 time I'd say they did a better job of capturing a realistic look than the HW's

thanks

The car pictured just brought in $300.00 on ebay. They usually only go for around $50.00 though.

ok, now THAT'S a weird coincidence. I got on the Vintage board tonight to post a question about an obscure open-wheel diecast I found, to see if anyone could identify it. I had never heard of Jet Wheels before. I read this post because it looked interesting... clicked the Breithaupts link... and lo and behold, I think that's what this thing is. I'm gonna start a separate thread about it...
