Atlas produced this kit in 1967. For a long time many believed that it was never issued as none had surfaced in the collectors circles. Eventually, a trade pack of 12 kits was discovered in a warehouse and the mystery was resolved. Since then, a few more have seen the daylight but it remains a very scarce item.
As usual, Atlas had the chassis and parts made in Japan by a jobber and the body was sourced at Midori, another Japanese slot car maker. The motor was the usual Johnson from Hong Kong.
