Gunthermann Record car 54cm clockwork box key original driver works Germany. Box has one end and some lid flaps missing and significant damages. Although the gold paint of the car has faded and patinated in parts, I think this adds another dimension to the aesthetic of the original design. After all it was only designed for a very short lifetime of record braking. The motor works when tested with its original key and the inside lid warns to engage the large motor locking lever before winding up. The large locking lever unusually has a long throw front to back and also works and is a prominent feature of the toy. The driver is somewhat loose but is original as is the celluloid windscreen. Overall it is free from dents so all of its uninterrupted smooth aerodynamic lines are in tact and although gold is missing or faded, having somewhat the look of the'Back To the Future Car' - it also having flown through time - as though 90 years of breaking records - it all looks to have great age about it, to make for an impressive absorbing display and one which grows on you when contemplated - far from the slab of metal that it appears on first encounter.
