Default 1:20 Model T Railcar

I found this little railcar in a collection being sold on FB. The seller had no idea where it came from, and he sold the collection in one lot, but as I had asked he kept this back and sold it to me. I don't have a powered track, so it has to go. $75 includes flat rate box shipping in the lower 48, o.b.o.









Someone who knew what he was doing made up a new brass frame with nicely milled crosspieces for the axles and added a geared motor and whisker wheel pickups. The pickups are nicely insulated from the frame inside a tube from the rear. The gears and universal seem to be Grandt Line O scale products.





Here's a little video of my test on the bench.

Pete,
I know this is an old listing, do you still have it? If so can you share dimensions? Or what scale would it be close to?
Thank you,
George

Hi George,
That one was based on a Hubley 1:20 metal kit, and it was sold a while ago.

However, I have a new one coming that will be for sale once I have put some real/rail wheels on it and cleaned up the power pickups! This one might be a Model A?

Looks like a model "T" kit from NENG.

Bingo! I just found the catalog online (thank you Michelle in Luxembourg) and I think you are right. I should arrive tomorrow. (I'm negotiating on the trolley too.)
