The American Company Strombecker from Chicago, Illinois, started as a toy maker. The production of slot cars started in 1962 and ceased in the seventies. The first model of Strombecker was a modified version of the battery-powered Maserati 250F. Strombecker sold its cars in kit form and ready-to-race models. RTR models were also offered in sets. Originally the Company offered two scales, 1/24 and 1/32. The production of the 1/24-scale models was ceased in 1964 and the Company concentrated on the 1/32 home market. The models of Strombecker were the least expensive in the business in the sixties.
