I knew I had this tucked away in a safe place- just could not find it until now.
Made by A.C Gilbert and sold exclusively by Sears, Christmas 1965 turned out to be an expensive one for parents, as the price for this was $35.00.
The set comprises of six sections that snap together, unlike the Scalextric set, this version is built up into a scenic display with lakes, a waterfall, mountains and even a Jump ramp!
when built it is 34 x 51 inches. The set is some 56 years old and the box is showing some wear, however when set up it looks Fantastic.
The set came with lots of accessories, oil drums, flags, trees and a start banner and also a red Ford Mustang and either a red or blue Aston Martin DB 5 - I have been able (over many years) to acquire one of each. I have the instruction leaflet and a single sheet on how to "Tune Up" before racing, the transformer and two hand held controls are present and complete the set.
