I took the axles and wheels off to clean it up a little, so it would roll again. Had some serious rust on the axles. Used my rust eraser and some mild sandpaper
and now it rolls like new. Green one is on it's way still, stay tuned!

I did notice the larger one on ebay right now for round 65 bucks I think. I mainly want the ones that are around 4 1/4 inches in length.
Do you or anyone know of a great plastic glue for toys?

I really like the look of these; moving while standing still!
Great to see what some "spit & polish" can do to restore them to their former glory.
Here's a little background on their origins:

Thank you for that Joe!
Here's the little case I put the Speed King cars in. The back of the case I lined with a reproduction Flash Gordan movie poster, for effect! Yes there are some other cars and trucks in there too, Renwal and Dillon Beck mainly. With the 2 Pyrotomic whistles in the back of bottom row.
