Athearn Hustler showing rubber band "Hi-Fi drive. Believe is Lionel shell which have metal horns versus Athearns plastic horns. For some reason previous owner wrote front/rear on frame.

      These were quite intriguing models in my youth. Ran reasonable well and quite fast which i thought was great. Not sure why previous owner marked front and rear on frame. Supposedly some have been clocked running at a scale 400 mph. Many times that mine tipped over on the curves while running all out at full blast speed. Boys and their toys !! I have acquired nearly 2 dozen of these and still occaisonally try to cross that 500 scale mph threshold. Ah the joys of youth !
