These pictures shows a New in Box Jerobee Greenwood Corvette.
The Corvette was a mid range kit.
On the box it says " Not recommended for beginners".
The Corvette had a twin intake ports in the cylinder and a large external tank. Wider chromed wheels with foam tires was standard equipment.
The body was made out of Lexan, not the hard Cycolac plastic as the McLaren and the Challenger had.
This was the fastest Jerobee with Cox Babe Bee and pull start, only the Cox Tee Dee version was faster.

Here we have some useful Jerobee T-shirts and caps that I have had made recently.
The T-shirt brand is American Apparel and the design from their vintage 70´s collection.
The print you see is on the back and there is a smaller one on the front as well.
The classic cap has been embroided.
If you feel that you can not live without one of these, please let me know at TeamGOG@telia.com
These six pages are from the Swedish importer Slotcar and their cataloge "RC Racing" from 1978.
Imagine how the market looked like with six full pages of 1/12 cars and parts!
It is in Swedish, but the last three or four digits are Jerobee original part numbers.
I guess you you can do basic translations on the Internet.
If you need any help, just ask: TeamGOG@telia.com
The Alfa 33 with Tee Dee engine is called the "Super Jerobee".
Please also look at the "Invader" rolling chassie on the last page.

Today I had a call from a sportscar friend and I knew that he had been involved i RC for a long time. But when we started talking I did mention my first car, the Jerobee, and to my surprise, his first car was also a Jerobee!!
In the afternoon he came by our house and surpriced me with his old cars!
This car was later converted to electric as can be seen in the photo.
Look at the handpainted flames from the mid 70´s!

This picture is from the introduction of the Jerobee at the US Toledo show 1972.
Swedish RC car pioneer Rolf Stahre was attending the fair together with US RC car pioneer Roy Moody.
Rolf was visiting Roy to see and learn more about RC car racing.
I take it Roy was a great teacher, Rolf won the Swedish champs later that year!
This was a promotion picture that was given to Rolf by a Jerobee sales rep.
Rolf later tested the Jerobee for a Swedish magazine and the review was good.
