Description* :
According to robert ames's book vintage miniature racing cars (p.94-97), "the challenger is a scarce all-aluminum mite car. It was one of the few streamliner types mites." It has a diesel engine lying flat and directly attached to the left front wheel. Interesting features on this car include the clear canopy and small fin at the rear. This is absolutely an excellent example of this vintage model car. The wheels turn as they should and everything is in perfect condition. I have been an avid collector of collector cars for over 25 years. I have had this model in my private collection for over 20 years. The car has always been displayed in a heated indoor environment in such a way as the tires never touch the ground. You will be proud to own this miniature powered racing car. This is the best example of a challenger that i have ever seen. This is a rare opportunity to buy this vintage tether race car.
