Oscar Koveleski founded Auto World in the basement of his home in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 1958. The small mail order hobby business grew to great proportions and became known for its annual product catalogs, which were filled with every car-related item an adolescent hobbyist might desire.
Auto World continues to work with top licensors, not only in the world of slot cars but also American Muscle 1:18 scale diecast replicas, AMT, MPC and Polar Lights model kit lines. "We are a busy team with plenty of ideas". One of those exciting plans is the creation of the NEW Auto World webstore! The Auto World store offers you hundreds of diecast vehicles, model kits, slot cars, race sets and accessories, plus limited edition exclusives that you can't find anywhere else.
