Its not Kyosho.

It might be an old Cox car. They once had a 1/12th nitro back in the '80s. However this looks somewhat home built from bits and pieces of an old RC12E.

In that case, two possibilities:

1) Straight axle no diff - Associated RC250

2) Straight axle with ball diff - Associated RC300

The chassis originally was thick fiberglass. This looks like it has some homemade aluminum parts.

If it had more original parts on it maybe to a collector or old AE cars.

I know that old RC500 can fetch a good price but not sure of the lesser kits like the RC300 & 250.

I dont know what kind of car this is, but I do know they did a horendous job of mounting the front axle. Wheel base looks to be about a 1/4 in shorter on the left side than the right.
