    RE: 1978 Texaco & Malboro 6 Wheel Indy Car I NEED HELP!!!

    I've had a quick look but I can't pin down the maker of the car for you.

    The Tyrell Ford f1 6 wheeler was released to race in 1978 and was sponsored by Elf but as to who makes the model I can't find out.

    There is another one on ebay at the moment but there's no bids on it as yet http://www.ebay.com/itm/1978-texaco-...item19d31c6a6b so as to value I can't help

    Sorry that I can't help more.

    The strange thing about it is that it appears to be a 6 wheel version of James Hunt's McLaren at the time... Look, the liveries are identical, only the McLaren didn't have 6 wheels, the p34 did, the following year...

    RE: 1978 Texaco & Malboro 6 Wheel Indy Car I NEED HELP!!!

    I think that this bloke may have his date wrong on this auction

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Estate-Fin...item4165839e52

    The handset is slightly different but the layout including the exposed engine(the one on the auction has a chrome plate on it) and how the bodywork is cut around it and the aerial coming out from the same part of the body looks as though it could be the same chassis with a different shell. Makes sense as no point racing your mates if all your cars looked the same.

    RE: 1978 Texaco & Malboro 6 Wheel Indy Car I NEED HELP!!!

    There's another thread on this car here, from banditra101801 , where this person found a NIBone, unpainted. It's brand is Dynatron. The worst remote of any RCcar I've ever seen, very unexciting to run. Yours has been painted to match the box art, just as Idid with mine as Ialso had this model as a kid. One of the few R/C's Ihad, given to me by my Aunt and Uncle at the time. Imight have been 11 or 12? If Ifound one at a toy show, NIBlike the one referenced on the other thread, I'd pay $25 for it just as a shelf queen, something to look at...Hope this helps. The threads should line up at the top now as Iposted in both threads.
