Understand that "identification mysteries" are common fare here and most of us enjoy them. That is why you are getting the responses in the numbers you are.

We are trying to help you enjoy and appreciate the car you have authentic or not. We are not argueing but having an open discussion. It is a regular feature of our forum.

Like any good mystery the search for clues is part of the fascination.

I appreciate it. Hopefully I'm not coming across as argumentative, just want to be 100% sure before I label it a fake. Either way I'll try to restore the engine.

Understand that parts will hard to find and "pricey" if you do. Cox cars have been OOP (out of production) for many years. Cox tether cars were very common in the post-World War II era and the survivors today date from that time period

"Old" is a matter up to interpretation. Remember when you were a ten-year old kid and you considered your parents "old" and your grandparents were "ancient"?

Likewise "restoration" means different things to different people. Restoring an engine begins with getting it to turn-over freely followed by careful disassembly and cleaning. The "search" file has good suggestions as does the CoxInternational (www.coxinternational. com) "Trouble-Shooting Guides" listed on the left of their home page. (They are copywritten and may not be copied)

We do engines well here so fire away with your questions. We're here to help.
