  • Vintage Jouef & SRM cars.

    Hi everybody. Here are pics of some of my vintage Jouef & SRM 1/40 scale cars from the 1960s. They are pictured on possibly the only permanent Jouef/Champion Playcraft layout (1/40 scale) left in the UK. More pics to follow.
    Cheers
    Kev.
    SRM were made in Middlesex, England during the early 1960s. Very rare now.

                Last 3 coming up. Only got to get 3 or 4 more models to complete the Jouef/Playcraft collection. I`ll post pics as & when I get those cars.
                Bit different from what you normally see, so I hope you`ve liked looking at these old cars.
                Thanks for looking.
                Cheers

                  Mystery Cars

                  Kevin, I have some Jouef cars I picked up Maybe 20 years ago. They say "circuits routiers" on the package. I thought they were 1/43 scale. Fairly detailed , a Porsche 936 blue "Martini", an Alfa GTV and Renault Alpine A 310. From the description are these the same type of cars you have? I took the Alpine out and ran it, very slow but looks cool, looks like a train motor in them. The Alpine in your picture looks the same but I didn't see any of the other two.

                    Hi Biggy. The Jouef cars you have are some of the last made before production ceased in 1980.
                    They are not rare, but nice to have.
                    The motor was indeed the same as Jouef TGP trains.
                    If the car is running slowly that normally means that the motor magnet needs re-zapping. A specialist train dealer will do this for you.
                    The cars will also need new tyres by now. These can be sourced from France(AEROSLOT tyres).
                    Jouef were larger than die-cast models at 1/40 scale. However, some of the later models were slightly larger than this.
                    Cheers

                        Hi Kev,

                        Good to see on here mate and good to see your comprehensive and excellent collection of Jouef cars. Have you got any pictures which show all of your layout? My favourites are the Alpine, R5, 911, but I especially like the Matra Djet and Capri!

                        Thanks,

                        Pete

                          Your Jouef collection

                          Hi Kevin,

                          that is some collection, I have never seen so many Jouef slotcars before

                          I have a few, a Blue formula 1 ?, a Red 300 SL, with Black roof, plus a few more.

                          I got them when I have bought old Scalextric (my passion)

                          I think I have some Jouef spectators/mechanics too ? not shure, but they look simelar, to the guys in the cars
