Hot Rod Bonneville Ford Coupe Tether Car 99 Cents:
Measuring 13''L x 8.5''W x 5'' TI purchased this body two years ago. It was a re-cast McCoy Roadrunner roadster, then somebody went to the trouble of casting a 3 window coupe top and welding them together.From there I added an old Fox Eagle 60 Glow engine. It's a direct drive unit that has a free wheeling bearing suspended outside wheel. Supposedly built for and used on the old Goodguys portable track. I didn't even clean it. It has good compression.The front end is a threaded drill blank axle mounted on a central coil spring(it's actually adjustable for height). The radius rods are old throttle linkage.It's got Firestone logo tall rear tires. The front tires are ill-fitting semi-pneumatics off of a model car (the Big "T"). They look great for display but aren't functional. I will include a set of bead lock McCoy skinny front tires.I hand cut the aluminum front grille and windshield (complete with scratched plexi-glass windows).And last I spent an entire week of evenings faux finishing the many layers of paint and patina. Hand pinstriped, Hand Lettered, Complete with a humorous play on words on the deck lid.If you are looking for the jewelry like craftsmanship known in the Tether Car Hobby. This car is not for you. But if you are looking for a scale representation of Hot Rodding and Racing that will draw people from 50 yds. This is it.Questions Welcome and encouraged. Please check out my other sales. Thanks for Looking...Dan
