That's just a little different.

Looks Beck-ish but I don't know if Beck ever made a chassis quite like that. Not recently, I'm sure.

The clam hinge/pinion looks like something I might have seen on a thread here about the CMI cars. Not sure.

Curious to hear more experienced opinions.

Can you post more pics of the car? I'm aware of a few CMI cars and may have more info for you...
