Fall Guy Slot Cars

Aurora contracted with race car drivers whose images and endorsements appeared on AFX Slot Car sets. These included Peter Revson, Jackie Stewart, Mario Andretti, A. J. Foyt, and Richard Petty. Revson’s untimely death in 1974 forced Aurora to cover his image with a sticker on already produced boxed sets. AFX licensed body shells encompassed a variety of themes including the Can-Am racing series, NASCAR and Trans-Am series stock cars, Formula 1, Funny Car Drag Racing, sports cars, off-road cars, and streetcars, as well as custom designs and many based on TV shows and movies. Aurora released only one licensed track set in 1982, when they partnered with the popular Fall Guy TV show. A licensed M*A*S*H set and fire engine set were planned for 1983, but Aurora suspended operations prior to release.
