I just ordered this set on Amazon. Looks pretty complete and are blackened.

You mentioned body screw. It wouldn’t happen to look like this as far as threads.

I’ve seen these individually but never found an assortment. Used for plastics with a coarse thread. If it is something like this. Atlas’ site has parts breakdowns and you might be able to come up with the correct size.

If all else fails. www.microfasteners.com  they have a good varied supply of just about anything. Maybe a local shop that specializes in RC cars and such can come up with something.

Good suggestions above.

For course body screws, and even some machine screws, I go to places and look for the most beat up, ruined, cheap plastic cars I can find,  pay about $3 to $5 for them, and salvage all of the screws  and usable small parts.  Often, you will find them with a totally metal frame and couplers in great shape, so I remove and trash the shells, and keep everything else in tact.

Most cheap plastic cars have been dropped, stepped on and kicked by kids far more than they have been run on the rails. 

See if you can find some trashed Atas O cars or engines.

Lots of self-tapping assortments on Amazon.
