Default Vintage gas car id help

s1252.photobucket.com/albums/hh574/Thomas_Quinn/Snapbucket/?action=view&current=6EDE49A9-orig.jpg&evt=user_media_share

I just picked this up and I'm trying to determine what maker it is so I can get the necessary parts... any help would be greatly appreciated... all I can say is that it's about 16 years old

Thanks in advance

That is very old, it is from somwhere begin the 80's I think. All I know is that in those days you could have several brands to 1 car and for sure finding parts will be very difficult.

In those days you had brands like PB, Delta and Serpent. Maybe you can find some info over here:

Its either an Associated RC250 or RC300.

The only difference between the RC250 and RC300 is that the RC250 had a straight axle and the RC300 had a diff.

Well, you're about half right.

Definitely an old AE.

Just checked. Its definitely an RC300 because of the radio tray.
