‘Ferrari 500 F2' Cast Aluminium Pylon or 'Tether' Racing Car Toy by Vega, 1952

$11,889.11

About

Vega: ‘Ferrari 500 F2’ An all cast, heavy aluminium pylon racer, with exhaust and hubcap detailing, with side mirrors, steering wheel and stylized ‘windshield’, powered by a rear-axel driven, 5cc glow plug petrol engine (not run, but capable of running) with soft-rubber tyres. French, circa 1952. Notes: These racers were usually made with a plain finish, and were made to then be ‘customized’ by their owners, by either painting them or by applying decals. Illustrated: l’Automobiliste – Les Moteurs Modèles Réduits Français, p.145, published in 2000.
