Bantam Midget Racing Car Model

by Me and My Car



The Bantam Midget model is a lare scale, stunning aluminium replica of a 1930's Spindizzie model racing car.

The 1930's saw the introduction of a collection of model cars commonly known as 'spindizzies' or 'tether cars'. They were usually hand made, fitted with a model airplane engine and raced around a wooden track, just like the full sized racers of the day. The cars raced initially on a tether (cable) anchored to a central pivot, and as speeds increased one needed to spin around to watch them – just like flying a model airplane with the same dizzying sensation – hence the nickname “Spindizzies.”

This gorgeous replica Model Bantam Midget is made in aluminium with a wooden footplate. Constructed using original blueprints from the 1930's. Each car is handmade and finished in meticulous detail. Each was built from the ground up using plantation hardwood, recycled aluminium, brass and leather. A replica, non-working, engine is included.

Available in polished aluminium and red painted finishes.

A fabulous addition to any man den and a great gift for birthdays and christmas.

Aluminium and wood with brass and leather detailing.
