Model Car & Track

Model Car & Track magazine was published monthly by Delta Magazines, Inc. in Los Angeles, California. The first “Winter Edition” in October 1963 teased readers, with a monthly publication schedule commencing as of September 1964.

Model Car & Track coincided with the American slot-car racing fad of the 1960s. The content focused on slot-car racing across all scales and types of cars. Regular features included product reviews, car and track construction how-tos, photo galleries, and collector’s guides.

After 46 issues, it was folded into Model Car Science magazine, another Delta Magazines title, after the January 1968 issue. Back issues are readily available on eBay.
