Lancer Retailer Display, circa 1967

July 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Anyone who knows anything about vintage slot cars also knows that Lancer vacuum-formed bodies were the best, most accurate bodies available in the 1960’s, regardless of material used, and often had greater detail than the best injected bodies.

in 1966, Lancer made several hundreds of dealer display frames with a selection of their bodies, factory painted and with specially produced number stickers. Few have survived intact, and this one is quite a rare find, as it is in near perfect condition. It was found in a warehouse in Pomona, California.

The board in all its glory. The bodies are attached with two pins. Can you identify them all?

The little guys up front are HO bodies… The very nice McLaren MK6 in the foreground is in the 1/32 scale.The Lancer emblem appear to be some form of dental plaster, then painted and polished.
