Renwal SpeedKing

Not really sure what year these Renwals were made but I have been looking for this yellow and the green one for many months. Finally got them both last week.

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!

RM, I've always thought that the Speed King was a classic design. Here are my 5. The multi-color is 10" and was motorized and non-motorized. The fun with them is there are so many colors.

I like yours Phil! Great collection you have there. I have just started collecting these after looking at them for years.

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?

Thanks,

Perry

Here's the green one that showed up this week. Number 7 on the hood.

Metallic green with burnt orange wheels.

This one also came in the mail today. Great condition, I really like the metallic versions of the SpeedKing cars.

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.

Thank you Joe! My wife picked up the case while in Texas, a few weeks ago and didn't think I would like it. I told her I had just the stuff to go in that!

Found the long searched out for burgundy metallic one this past week! I own a sedan in this same color and thought if I could find a Speedking in this color, that would be great. So here it is after a little cleaning.

Perry (THUNDER) sent me these photos of his Speed King collection and some new additions,

and asked me to post them for him.

Perry tells me that the free wheeling yellow version was given out to Renwal employees.

The red friction version was sold in stores.

Wow!! Joe thank you for posting these pics, these are rarely seen in this great condition. Sorry for the slow response, I have had some computer issues.
