The Story

Own a replica of one of the fastest model racing cars of the 1930s—the Red Bantam Midget. Spindizzies, or tether cars, resembled the full-size, open-wheel racers of their day. The original model racers were often handmade by skilled owners, who spent hundreds of hours on each car. Powered by model airplane engines, these meticulously crafted vehicles reached speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. Constructed using original blueprints, this Red Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. Not a toy but a high-tech piece of art representative of the pioneering technology of the early twentieth century. A wonderful gift for the auto enthusiast and nostalgic at heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Hot Racing C ar This red bantam miget race car is by far the nicest one I have found in years.The quality of this car is superb. The all aluminum body,wire wheels and engine detail is wonderful. The company that produces these race cars is Authenic Models, they also have other racing cars of the 40s and 50s I would strongly reccomend these fine museum quality models to any collector
