You are right..my is called bumble bee ..now i remember ,.. and look at number 7 on cage upper πŸ™‚

The rod spark and super cobra they had the same chassis with only different hoods

 

Yep - looks like you have the Presto Bumble Bee πŸ™‚
Glad I was able to help. To be honest, I did not realize that Presto made so many cars... but I knew about several of them. The bumper and the tyres were the parts that reminded me of Presto.

Presto also made some Tamiya-grade cars as well, which again took very liberal ideas from Tamiya as well 😌  The cars look okay, but almost all of them seem to take the style of models from other brands. Quite funny.

Yes, I am aware of Spica too - I have one of their cars here (actually, several of it - with the goal being to restore one). It was Taiwanese too I think, just like Presto.

Yes, the Spica brand is also a Taiwanese manufacturer of these buggys

Today i received my package from ebay...i bought another (little broken) buggy,to restored my πŸ™‚

How amazing that you found another one, so quickly! Glad you've been able to restore it. The car looks a bit like a Marui Galaxy, or maybe a Kyosho Icarus.

Some serious action with my old Buggy πŸ˜ƒ
I'm really surprised by the speed of this old car and the 280 size of motor.....but besides, it's not even a model, but a toy ...
To let you know that in the old days, toys also worked well
Today, some real models are worse ..
