These were toy cars about 10" to 12" inches long that got their power from a ribbed T-handle that you pulled through the car that spun a large center wheel. They were pretty fast.

Joe is right. The SSP series was a Kenner product, going back to 1969. Kenner was a division of the General Mills company at the time. In 1977, Kenner was bought by Hasbro. Hasbro, in turn, dropped the Kenner name by 1980. SSPs ended production around 1975.

I had an SSP Racer as a child. When I got it out to show my son, the wheels cracked apart on the way down the driveway. Guess they'd gotten brittle after all those years. 😕
