    That chassis is similar to an old Mura chassis that I have. The motor bracket is exactly the same, but yours is an isofulcrum setup and mine has a regular drop arm with very limited travel. In addition my chassis has three lengths of piano wire on each side, so it did not need the rear transverse parts. I bought the chassis in 1968 and built it as an Indy Eagle to run in a Memorial Day race. I got drafted before I had a chance to run the car. After I got out of the Army in 1970 I added hinged side pans to the chassis and put on a squashed down Lance Lola T-70 MK III body, but I can't recall ever racing it.

      Looks like a U-GO chassis, they had both a Superlite chassis and Swing chassis with drop pickup arm like pictured.

          Thanks guys. The dots are connecting. The dried-out tires are the trademark blue-green of U-Go tires!

            It looks a lot like the second chassis I ever made, minus the soldering slop, burnt spots, etc. I remember I got it from Model Car Science or Model Car Racing, or something. Not Car Model. I have all of them. Anyway, if that helps, it looks a lot like it, circa 1967 or so.

              I was gonna guess it was one of the Champion RTR chassis, they all had that nice soldered assembly and nickle plated finish. I have an old Champion 1/24 anglewinder type with side pans, 4 1/2 inch wheelbase. A FUN car to slide around an old Lexan Torino stock car body powered by a MURA GP12 motor!
              Wouldn't mind having one of those inline chassis to have a little FUN with, too! Thanks for the photos, guys. -- Ernie
