Were any of the Nylint cars functional?

I have a blue one that appears to be with the exception of a fuel line. Gears appear to be steel, engine pops with compression, seem real to me. Really good replica if not.

Roy Cox Champion cars came with a Cameron engine, Nylint cars came with a plastic dummy engine.  Do you have a picture?

The engine is not plastic, it has a functioning piston.

Nylint models were with dummy engines. The Roy Cox Champions could probably be modified because the whole drive unit was self contained. I have seen modified Nylint for sale on eBay.

this is the McCoy drivetrain

The McCoy Nylint could probably be modified to run if the castings were good and you have the parts.

How to post photo link   I think there is a member post count and time factor, I can't remember.

You have to upload to photo host then cut and paste.

Lumporie you have hooked up with the most knowledgable person on the forum for gas powered model cars. Crankbndr is the authority.

I'm not sure how you came up with Nylint, but it sounds like you hit the jackpot. I think it's five days before you can post pictures. Do you do model planes/trains also?

I have been into tether cars for 15-20 years, have a modest collection and wasn't comfortable with a replica. i got it cheap at a flea market and couldn't figure out if it was functional or not. Engine seemed real along with drive train. Came in a Nylint box so that's what I thought I had.

I'll post some pictures of my collection when I'm able to.

Glad I hooked up with the right guy, Thanks!

I have a few of these Nylint cars. They all have fake cast metal engines. The Blue McCoy one has gears you can hear spinning inside, where the Thimble Drome Champion cars don't. If the engine is real with compression, then someone must've put that engine in it after it was sold by Nylint.



You should be able to post pictures. Follow these instructions: https://www.coxengineforum.com/t15567-how-to-post-an-image-in-a-topic

It looks new, you say it pops with compression. Get some fuel line, some glow fuel and a power sourse - 1 1/2V battery eg. If your unfamiliar with glow engines there is a lot of information on the net.

Looks like someone tried to make it functional. The gears are real and the wheels are vintage like tether car wheels.
These parts were available until recently, now not so much. The engine looks real, the hardest engine part to find would be the parts
that convert it from air to tether. It just bolts to the engine case. Most of the info web sites are gone now also.

Here is another that was converted

Bingo!  Same same!  The tether bar is in the box still sealed in a plastic beg.
