Gtd Orig 1930s/40s Dooling Mercury Rear Drive Aluminum Race Tether Car Excellent:
This is a GUARANTEED ORIGINAL VINTAGE LATE 1930S/EARLY 1940S DOOLING MERCURY REAR DRIVE ALUMINUM TETHER RACE CAR IN EXCELLENT OVERALL CONDITION. The race car, which measures an impressive 18” long (46cm) has nothing broken or repaired. I purchased this car over 20 years ago and have had it displayed on blocks to avoid tire flat spots. I am not an expert, but I will describe as best I can. The chassis is perfect and has not been drilled or cut to accommodate engine or add-ons. The radiator, mid and rear body sections, have no dings or breaks etc., and only original factory mounting holes which match the chassis exactly. The car is a little dusty with light tarnish in a few places, but I’m sure it will polish to a bright shine if that’s what you wish. All 4 tires are round with no cracks, etc. and are still supple. The tires are all marked on the inside “DOOLING BROS LOS ANGELES CAL.” All of the tie rods, front and rear, match to the frame exactly. The front rods have adjusters (which may not be original, I am not sure) to set the car for straight ahead or left/right circles. I have never attached them to the car, as I do not have nuts and bolts. In fact, the body sections are also not screwed in, for the same reason. The gears are a little tarnished, but there are no broken teeth and they mesh exactly when the rear wheels are turned. The car also has front and rear spring suspension. This incredible car is ready for the next owner to start with a completely stock racer, which I believe is very unusual. The car is being offered with a reasonable reserve.
