    I stumbled on this myself.

    I have never seen it. It definitely has Cox flavor to it.

    It looks like quite an efficient design to me as well with only having two stamped and folded brass parts. Also, it has lots of flexibility as far wheel bases it can be adapted to fit. If you can find a way to mount the posts just about any body shell could be used on it.

    I think we could sell this today!

    If it is a prototype, I know who is going to get it.

    Nelson,
    Not a prototype.

    IIRC, these came out near the the end of the slot car boom., by a Chinese affiliate of Cox.

    Along with the chassis shown, they had an inline chassis version, similar to the Gurney Stocker, but with the front wheels snapping into the body.

    A cox prototype maybe? Cox may have been developing a adjustable side winder chassis. My have to find any info when this chassis made and maybe the history of cox in the early days of slot cars.
