Looks to me like you have a duke's mixture of Micro Machines and kit trophy tops.

I have a few of those. Including the 57 Chevy & Ford that AMT had in those 2 kits as Trophy tops

I have a few of the 32 Ford coupe too. Not sure I have seen the Pickup version.

Remember the "Customizing" Series??

It included a Modern Vette in the Chrome Trophy & Stancion tree

I made an "N" scale R/C car for a friends railroad layout at his hobby shop in Joplin. I used sprue from a model car kit and wrapping wire for the tires...

Don't forget about the Revell "Amigo Pack" issues from about ten years ago that included a 1:64 diecast in the same color scheme as the 1:25. I still have the little T-bucket diecast on my computer desk.

yeah those cars are meant to go on trophies from AMT kits i believe. really kool. ive seen one of the pickup trucks, 34 ford i believe, with a chopped top and a chrome flame job. i collect them anytime i see any, usually in "junk" spare parts boxes brought to club meetings for everyone to comb through.
