Description:
Friction powered Ford highboy hot rod roadster with moving pistons. The car is a fairly accurate representation of the stripped down rods that raced on Muroc & El Mirage dry lake back in the hey-day of hot rodding. The roadster sports a detailed hopped up flathead V8 engine with what look like rocker arms (even though flat motors didn't have rockers) that move back and forth when car is rolled along. Friction motor and clicking sound to imitate a loud racing engine work flawlessly. Colorfully detailed litho interior sports a full compliment of gauges on the dash, and a separate metal three spoke Bell style steering wheel
