This splendid model of a Spin dizzy race car is based on a model originally created by the famous Dooling Brothers, who manufactured around 1000 units at the time. They were offered to aficionados of the famous Dooling spin-dizzies, miniature motorised race cars that reached dizzying speeds. They were closely modelled on the famous Mercedes Silver Arrows of the early 1930s. Originals are now rare and highly prized by collectors.
Moulded with the same exacting detail as its original, our Indy racer is hand-cast in airplane aluminium. Hand polished and buffed to a high shine, it features a detailed dashboard, faux leather seat, steering wheel and brake. In keeping with its original model-toy character, the front wheels are not linked to the steering wheel. The wheel hubs and rubber tyres are made with the same exact detail as the original.
Enjoy a truly unique piece of Grand Prix history. This shiny, sleek desktop racer represents both the romance and the dramatic beauty of the most famous Grand Prix racers ever! Beautifully presented it makes a great gift or a lovely treat.
