This museum quality BB Korn Manufacturing Company model resembles the original down to the smallest detail! The 1930s saw the rise of hand-built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Constructed by hobbyists, these miniatures zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spindizzies competed at once, powered by a hidden model airplane engine, and tethered by cables to a central pole.
Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Using the original blueprints, this spindizzy is handmade of aluminum with a cherrywood base and features a hood that opens to reveal an intricate simulated engine, rubber wheels, and wire spokes. 19'' long; arrives ready to display.
