I just finished polishing and cleaning up this 1947 A. L. Maxey Challenger Jr.

This is a mite size car approx 11" long. The Maxey is unique because of the choice of an "Air-O-Diesel" .278 c. i. engine, powering the Left front wheel.

Diesel engines in tether cars were common in Europe but quite rare in the U. S. A.

Here's my newest, bought from the late Lloyd Torrey collection. It's a Papina P-3 powered by an OK Super 60 converted to glow plug ignition. It is 17 1/2" long and has a Magnesium pan with a plastic body.

This car was raced almost entirely in Sweden, the S.M.R.U. standing for the Swedish Model Racer Union.

The Papina tether/rail cars were originally built in 1948/1949 by Al Papina in San Francisco, Al was a noted midget race car builder and driver in northern California in the 40's.

This car is complete and ready to run.
