Eldon Slot Cars and road Race Sets--Documentation
On this page you will find all sorts of documentation and instructions to educate you and give you thrills! Well, not THAT kind of thrill, but never mind.
Below is all the documentation that came with my early Selectronic Grand Prix Set, including the Dan Gurney-endorsed catalog. This, along with "Catalog Orange" are the two best manuals produced by Eldon for their sets. Later year sets had sometimes very skimpy documentation.

Below: All pages of the color/black and white "one fold" of Eldon accessories. Personal note: I had the Corvette inside the case with the pit guy, as shown. It was in orange and had headlights. I would constantly place the pit guy on the track and gun him down with various cars.

Right: A seemingly earlier manual, known as Catalog Orange, less photos and more hand-drawn pictures, features older style track and fencing, details on flagman, and an address list of Eldon-certified service centers/hobby stores. Scanned pages coming soon.
