    Any idea what this is? I just picked it up on ebay for cheap. I really like the shape of this little boattail racer. It's all metal, even the wheels. The No. 3 badge is paper - I doubt that is original, but it seems to suit this little (six inch) car nicely. Those slots along the tail, are they maybe for a fin that is missing? It looks a bit like a Chad Valley racer, but there's no hole for a wind up key. And the front grill is a separate piece, rather than molded into the body. Thanks for any help you can offer!

      Just a "bump". I still have no idea what this car is, how old it is or anything. Sure looks cool in my cabinet though! Thanks for any help.
