Slot Car Bodies

Be advised, these Resin Body kits require intermediate to advanced modeling skills. Trimming, sanding and detailing are required as well as a means of attaching a chassis.

Note from Smilin' Ray:

My Slot Car Bodies are individually made using the "slosh" mold process. Every effort is taken to produce a top quality product. All bodies are checked to be accurate 1:32 scale. Any significant variations from scale are indicated. Thoroughly wash body with cool water and mild detergent before painting. If by chance the resin body becomes distorted it can be reformed using warm water. I believe my bodies excel in quality to cost comparisons with the competition. Please contact me if you are dissatisfied with any of my products. If you are pleased, tell a friend.

I am stocking up on American Iron Slot Car Bodies and Clones for Classics Slot Car Tires. I will attempt to keep some bodies made and ready to go. Any out of stock bodies can be made on request. Usually within one week.

Thanks!

2004-2008 Chrysler Crossfire

Although not truly "American Iron", I decided I'd ad it to my line of Resin Slot Car Bodies. Developed during the union of Daimler and Chrysler, the two-seater is based on the R170 platform and shares 80% of its components with the R170 Mercedes-Benz SLK320. The 2nd generation Mercedes-Benz SLK was built on a new R171 platform starting in the 2005 model year. The R170 platform was essentially handed down to Chrysler for use in building the Crossfire.


This body is accurate at 1:32 scale. With a 2.95" wheelbase it can handle many early slot car chassis. Eldon and Revell for example.


The bottom right is my own build of this truly pleasant slot car body.


Resin body kit includes Vac-formed glass and resin interior tray with Cox style helmeted driver head (or optional helmet-less man or woman driver head).  $25 plus S&H. Email [email protected] if additional details are required.

1951 Fabulous Hudson Hornet


The Fabulous Hudson Hornet is back!


1:32 scale resin reproduction of this famous post war race car. This car was big and so is the reproduction in 1:32 scale. I’ve pretty accurately fashioned the model within reasonable tolerances:


Specifications of the 1951-1953 Hudson Hornet (in inches):


              Actual    1:32 scale    Model

Length        208.3       6.51        6.5

Wheelbase     124         3.88        3.9

Track front   58.5        1.83         *

Track rear    55.5        1.73         *

Width         77.7        2.43        2.55

Height        60.4        1.89        1.8


* Track specifications (for full size cars) are given as the measurement from center of tire to center of tire. With the standard equipment 7.10 - 15 tires, “tread” widths (outside of tire to outside of tire) would be approximately:


Front tread   65.8        2.06        2.15

Rear tread    62.8        1.96        2.15


Resin reproduction is of the 1951 Hudson Hornet (there are subtle differences in the 1952 and 1953 models). Includes clear plastic outlined for window glass and resin "sedan" interior tray with Cox style driver head, Or choice of woman or man driver head without helmet (see below). $28 plus shipping.

Please read:


It should be known that I fashioned the prototype from a Hudson toy. The only portion of the toy that even closely matched the real car was the profile of the fenders and doors and the hood and trunk trim. I spent over 100 hours narrowing the car and forming a proper roof. Upon building the model pictured I noticed that there is a bit of a distortion.


These are pictures of the built up model. The top view shows my concern. The car is wider at the back of the front wheel well than it is at the bumper. I didn't notice this until I built the car. Maybe I'm being too picky but I take pride in my work and don't want someone to purchase the Hudson body and then be unhappy with it.

 

It still does make an excellent slot car as you can see. If you decide to purchase the Hudson and are unhappy with it once you receive it, return it in its original condition for a refund of the purchase price.
