Unearthing CW artifacts

On Saturday, some of my siblings and I helped clean out my parents garage
and basement. Here are a couple of artifacts that I unearthed:

This Speed-X bug was in a box in the garage. I certainly dont recall
purchasing this, nor does my father. As you can see, its missing quite a
few parts, as if it was cannibalized already. Anyone know if there is a
source of parts for these things, or do I have to just toss this out or
offer it to someone else to use the remaining parts?

I dont recall using this to learn the code, but if I did, this record would
be nearly 50 years old now. Side 1 looks playable still, but Side 2 looks
pretty beat up, unfortunately.

What kinds of things have you unearthed, either in your parents house or
perhaps an estate sale?
