Minature Racing Car

The Bantam Midget, also known as the Spindizzie, was a 1930s-era American invention. This was the era when anyone could be the next Enzo Ferrari (who started his company in 1929), Ettore Bugatti (1909) or Henry Ford. There were no computers: all you needed was metal, fuel and a lot of time and enthusiasm. Constructed using original blueprints and plans, the Authentic Models Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail.

 
Handmade Construction
 
This replica model is hand constructed from aluminium, with a cherry wood and maple frame, spoke wheels with rubber tires, a detailed dash and steering wheel, a faux leather seat and turning front wheels. It is also packaged with an information and instruction booklet - making it a wonderful gift for a car enthusiast or hobbyist. A stunning model - it makes a perfect addition to a vintage car collection.
 
Grown Boys' Toys
 
The 1930s saw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Hobbyists built minature racecars and raced them around small tracks. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, they were wonderful toys, but they were also more than that - they were works of art, representing the best pioneering technology of the era. Authentic Models have produced a wide selection of wonderful model racecars, grown boys' toys of the 1940s and 1950s. Transport yourself back to the entertainment of the time, before TV sets, mobile phones and iPads changed the habits of hobbies forever.
