Vtg 50s Roy Cox Thimble Drome Champion Metal Gas Tether Race Car Hot Rod Nos&box:
I recently purchased a large estate collection of along time local Hot Rodder/Sprint Car driver. All the parts and collectibles were safely stored away for years. These are all estate finds and original! Please see my sales for other antique automobile parts, collectibles, toys and other cool items form the same estate.
Up for sale is an original new old stock Roy Cox gas powered Champion Thimble Drome tether car dating from the early 1950's. Made in Santa Ana, Ca. and is in the shape of an early sprint car racer. Comes with the original box and has never been used. The box is marked on the side "Yellow-Blue" and has a small piece torn from the other flap side(nothing major and the rest of the box is in very nice shape). The car is in mint unused original condition. No motor or modifications, no broken parts, paint has no issues, no nicks, no chips, no scratches, has the original shiny finish, no cracks, rubber tires are mint, interior paint is mint and is as nice as you will find. Gear shifter and axles move as they should and this car has never been used or had an engine installed. Measures approx. 9 3/4" by 5 1/8" and weighs 1 pound 12 ounces unpacked. The body and chassis is made of metal and has the original paint. Marked on the bottom as seen in the photos. Rare Hot Rod related toy and is a must for any collector. Will ship overseas and combine shipping on multiple wins. Again, this was found at a recent 90 year estate and was stored for years. Photos are accurate and feel free to email me with any questions.
