A few years back while collecting for the LASCM, I ran across these, basically display prototypes devised by Ron “Von” Klein for the company’s “new products meeting”, and that never made production as things were beginning to unravel in those dark days of 1967.
Fortunately these models survived, and I was able to acquire them as they became available shortly before we lost Ron to illness. All are of course in the 1/24 scale. A few bodies can still be found as Ron distributed some to MESAC club members, especially the Porsche 907 Spyder.
Russkit Alfa 33 “Periscopo”, body by Ron “Von” Klein and prototype brass chassis:
Russkit Elfin, the body itself had a very short run but the RTR or kit never came out:
And better pics of the 1/24 scale PAM-Chevy:
Another pair that were never issued (the 907 Spyder was distributed to a few MESAC members by Ron, but the production model was canned). The Bergspyder actually existed as a real car!
Another that was unfortunately never issued: a Russkit Felday-BRM with brass chassis, seen here with the Elfin…
I ran across this article after doing some research on this rare record I have produced by Russkit Records. It’s a live recording at Laguna Seca in 1966 about the two Porsches that Russkit sponsored. Cool that the slot car company was also dabbling in real racing as well. They modeled some on the slot car bodies after their own race cars. Cool thanks for posting.
These cars are fantastic! You are very fortunate to have them and we are fortunate to be able to view them. I hope that you will continue to be able seek out items like these so that all will be able to enjoy them for years to come. Congraulations for having a wonderful slot car museum.
I love your slot car museum.
A very nice find…. pretty lucky guy I’d say….
I have a very old plastic wind-up slot race car,
from the 50’s ?
I can send you some photo’s.
I heard they sold door to door by our late friends
father and our friend was 86 .
Does any one make repros.
These were the best! I also went to the Jim Russell sc
We do not know of anyone making reproductions of Russkit slot cars.
I’m pretty sure I saw the master patters for these cars come up for sale on eBay some years back. Does anyone know where they ended up?
