Vintage Thimble Drome Racer, 0-forty Five Special, Original Box, Never Used:
$536


This is a Cox Thimble Drome O-Forty-Five Special Racer, circa 1949-50, in the original box. It was a birthday gift to a kid named Mario who never assembled the car; seems to have taken the body out of the box just long enough to break the brake handle (not shown); never removed the engine from the box. The box is not perfect; has corner scuffs and a couple of tears on the top. The body is excellent; has no damage but a small area of paint loss on the head rest where it rubbed against the box top and a flaw in one of the number decals. The engine has never been fired; .045 cu in displacement; planetary 4:1 gearbox, enclosed flywheel, fuel tank, glow plug, built-in muffler. There is a bridle in the box and some tether cod in the parts envelope. The Care and Operation sheet and other papers are included. The brake handle could be mended but a replacement is available for about $6. This car is not exactly NOS but almost 'as new'; a great example of a very desirable, very collectible racer.
Thanks for looking. If you offer, good luck!
