Not sure of the brand, but it does look old.

I see two servo moutings, which means one for steering and one to move the "swiper" style speed controll. Now all speed controlls are electric not swipers.

Also, that chassis may be a dirt oval chassis. It is hard to tell by the top without looking at the ground clearence.

It looks like one of those pre-built radio shack cars.

I am not sure what it is but in all honesty you might have to throw it out, or fabricate parts, cause I can see you missing the bell crank and a few other pieces.

It's hard to tell, but I think it might be a Kyosho Mantis... that has been modified to have oil shocks. (They came with an angled spring in the arm mount assembly)
If you bought it from your friend, can't they tell you what it is?
