VINTAGE, ALMOST ANTIQUE CLOCKWORK CAR. MECCANO CONSTRUCTOR MOTOR CAR No. Sports Tourer, now nearly 90 years old. Still with its rare original box & instruction sheet. Great untouched red finish, and blue roof, mudguards and interior seats.
Working steering and clockwork mechanism. I couldn't find any key, but it does wind up (just tested with small screwdriver inserted across the underside winding shaft hole). Car looks great with its natural aged red paint finish etc...
Odd marking, wear but looks great fine. Wheels / tyres look fine for their age. Rare original box displays with 90 odd years of wear, tear etc... Box still has its RED #1 stickers.
Original fold out instruction sheet, so nice to still have it has archival tape repair along centre seam. CAR DISPLAYS GREAT ON THE SHELF. (please see images for actual condition). NEARLY 90 YEARS OLD, ORIG. Please take a good close look at the images i've added, as these also form part of the description...
If you need more pictures or have questions etc... Refunding if less, once posted.
Let me know if you have specific posting requirements... I will try to accommodate.
