route 66


These cars were sold through K-Mart stores on single
blistercards. Route 66 is owned by Ertl/RC, and these are
based upon the Racing Champions micros. I am unsure
if the whole series was ever produced.

Identifying Marks




 

These were sold under the name 'Route 66', but the base is stamped 'Racing Champions'. All cars are advertised as 1:144 scale. These are about the same length as Micro Machines, but noticeably smaller in width. The windshields are clear so you can even see the interior! The bases are BLACK, whereas the Racing Champions editions are unpainted metal. The body also has a hole in it for a key chain to pass through.

The item numbers shown can be found on the backs of some blisterpacks in the lower right corner. Not all blisterpacks had the number printed on the back.
