Missouri Pacific Stock Cars

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:629
Category:Stock Cars
Road Name:Missouri Pacific
Road Number:629
Year Introduced:1946
This model was produced from 1946 through 1953 and has 14 variations. Five variations all from 1946 have a plastic chassis. As seen in the photo, the car is warped because of the unstable plastic used at that time. Beginning in 1947, Gilbert went to a die cast frame in order to correct the warping issue, and so as such there are five variations of the #629 with die cast chassis that were produced from 1947 through 1953. Finally the #629 was produced with a sheet metal chassis from 1949 through 1953 with four variations.

Manufacturer ID:929
Category:Stock Cars
Road Name:Missouri Pacific
Road Number:929
Year Introduced:1952
The #929 was produced from 1952 through 1957 in five variations. One of the rare models made in 1952, which is painted red, has early knuckle couplers that are riveted to the truck assembly, as shown in the foreground of the photo. Photo #2, on the left side of the photo, shows the typical crimped style knuckle coupler used on the #929 starting in 1953, while the car on the right shows the early riveted knuckle coupler used in 1952. Only three other 1952 cars and some of the K325 locomotives have the riveted knuckle couplers. The second variation, shown in the rear, is painted red with standard knuckle couplers and a two-piece brake wheel. The third variation has a tuscan-painted body with a two-piece brake wheel. The fourth is like the third except it has a one-piece brake wheel. The fifth variation, which is the rarest of all five variations, was produced in 1957. It is painted tuscan over a black shell however, unlike all of the other variations, it has open slats and came in a box marked "1956", "929" and "24072".
