Little is known about the Reuhl, a somewhat unique car offered by Reuhl Products of Madison, Wisconsin, beginning in 1947. The car’s design was definitely from the pre-war era. Body construction was advertised as being of fiberglass, which at the time would have been a first for the miniature racer hobby. Actually, the first cars were of Bakelite, a phenolic resin product, used in its characteristic dark brown color. Later production was of true fiberglass. Reuhls were manufactured with bearings mounted both outboard near the wheels and inboard. It is unclear when the changes occurred.

The Reuhl was sold in cable-ready form as standard, but was “readily adaptable for rail.” The manufacturer also claimed that all popular .60 size engines of the period could be fitted. Reuhl’s advertisements and brochures noted the availability of a complete line of accessories.
