NOTE: Version I & II ZINGERS chassis connect to the body with either screws or pins.
From the factory, ZINGERS Version II chassis were ONLY connected with pins.
If you find a ZINGERS Version II chassis that is connected with screws, this is was done after the car was opened from package or removed from a set and NOT at the factory.
Any ZINGERS II chassis attached by screws is a sure sign that the chassis was removed for a variety of reasons, such as maintenance, repair, etc.
Any ZINGERS I or II chassis found attached to a NON ZINGERS body style is a sure sign that the chassis was tampered with.
