BB Korn, Red
The BB Korn racing car measures 20.75" x 9.75" x 7". This recreation of a model made in the 1930's by BB Korn, one of the noted miniature racing car manufacturers of the period. Tether cars were model cars with a small engine that ran on a circular race track tied to a cable and 'tethered' to a post in the center of the track, spinning around at speeds up to 200 miles per hour, they soon gained the nickname Spindizzy. Tether cars, aka: Spindizzies, were developed beginning in the 1920s-30s and still are built, raced and collected today. First made by hobby craftsmen, tether cars were later produced in small numbers by commercial manufacturers such as Dooling Brothers (California), Dick McCoy (Duro-Matic Products), Garold Frymire (Fryco Engineering), BB Korn, and many others. Original examples of the early cars, made from 1930s to the 1960s, are avidly collected today and command prices in the thousands of dollars. This item is made of aluminum. It has a highly detailed dash board, leather seat & engine compartment. It has a faux engine, rubber tires & is red in color. It has the number 17 with flying horse Pegasus Special on the side of the car.
