Here is my Corgi Electro Rockets cars collection.
I have 47 cars, 39 in a box.
40 with a DC engine and 7 with a sizzler engine.
19 Alfa Romeo Montreal cars and 28 Bizzarini Manta.
5 Alfa Romeo Montreal with the original paint and
6 Bizzarini Manta with the original paint.
From the 6 original Bizzarini Manta, 2 with glow in the dark windows.
2 spare bodies and 1 spare window.

Thank you. But it is hard to find another Corgi Electro Rockets car.
I have 1 coming from Ebay.
A green one.

<p>The green one arrived today. Open the car, the body in ovencleaner and the contacts in 1/2 Viakal and 1/2 water. I hope the little brushes are good.</p>

The body after ovencleaner and a good cleaning.
The brushes in the little black cap are missing so i have to make them.
I also have to make the negative contact, that contact is also missing.(red circle)

Looking good so far and nothing you are not used to doing by now.

I made the - contact and the brushes for the little black cap.
But the little engine is not working, i think i have to rewind it.
But that is something new, i'm going to try it.

Good luck on the re-winding of the armature. That can be tricky.

I found a little movie on youtube on how to rewind a DC motor.
But first i got to get copper wire.

Yes and make sure it is coated and that you wind it flat and straight. Overlapping will not work. Takes time from what I remember about doing my 1952 Ford F150 6 volt generator. that had burned up and I could not afford a new one to I did it my self.

But first i'm going to clean it.

Nice combination. Is this your first Gold car with a Blue window? I think so.
