1950s Detailed Driving School Model



This impressive model is well over 4-foot long. In the 1950s European driving schools were required to teach students how the car worked as well as how to drive them. This model was designed by Fritz Fortenbacher and made by the Böhm Company in Germany. It’s the likable cartoon style look of this cars front end that makes this example so popular. Just crank the handle and all the parts are set in motion.
