Hand finished airplane aluminium body, faux leather seat, rubber tyres with hand cast aluminium hubs...this is a striking replica model of a 30's B.B.Korn spindizzy racer with real attention to detail down to the dials on the dash.
Technically skilled enthusiasts of the 1930s loved to race their model cars around the club tracks. Called tether cars or spindizzies, they reached incredible speeds, and inspired thousands to improve and invent. The founder of the B.B. Korn Manufacturing Company, Barney Korn, produced several tether car models that now, as vintage antiques, achieve astounding sums at auction. In keeping with the original the front wheels are not linked to the steering wheel, lift the hinged hood for a glimpse at the motor.Hand finished this piece is sure to delight any car lover and its large scale would make it the star of any library or display space.
