Htc 1957 Ford Robot Space Car Replica One Of A Kind:
Up for your consideration is my version of the HTC 1957 Ford Robot Space Car - I have no idea what the official name of this toy is, but that's what it's called here for this sale. Many of you probably saw the original that showed up here in February this year and enjoyed/marveled at it same as me. The toy has a freshly rebuilt strong friction motor and all original tires. One of the front tires has a small piece missing close to the edge of the hubcap but does not detract visually. The windshield frame, trunklid star, bubble thingy on the drivers side, robots and back seat TV box are all custom made pieces of tin and resin. The robots were decorated to resemble the tin robots in the original car. This toy is 12" long, 5 1/2" wide and 3 3/4" tall. This toy will also be featured for sale at the Chicagoland Antique Advertising, Slot Machine and JukeBox Show April 5, 6 and 7 (this weekend) at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois and is subject to sale at this show unless other arrangements are made. I had one more of these toys ordered by a great customer in Australia and I don't plan to make another unless I make it for myself so don't miss out on this one. Please feel free to ask any questions before offerding and I'll try to be quick about answering. This is 'show month' for me and I'm buried with work so please be patient and I'll be sure to get to you in time. Please visit the Uncle Al's Toys website for great deals and additional parts and toys! All efforts are made to be as exact in the condition and description as possible. PLEASE ask questions before offerding and please be kind when leaving response ratings. I strive to please but I do this alone and do the best I can. Thanks for looking and please be sure to check out my other toy sales and website. Good luck! $15.95 USPS Priority Shipping - US LOWER 48 ONLY, Alaska, Hawaii and International by quote.On Apr-07-13 at 05:33:19 PDT, seller added the following information:
Hello again! A good friend and avid space toy collector sent me an email referencing a Smith House sale from May of 2009, the Alan Rosen Collection, item #74 in the catalog showing the original toy realizing a final value of $9605.00! That being said, the real reason he sent it was that the catolog picture showed the toy had a diamond shaped wire antenna on it. I now understand the reason for the 'bubble' on the drivers front fender so I've fabricated a new antenna and installed it on the car. I've added two more pictures showing the antenna installed. (Thanks my friend!) There's nothing like a COMPLETE toy! Best to all! Uncle Al
