Berkeley is a very famous manufacturer of flying model kits from the Golden Age of flying aviation, about 1932-1954. Founded in 1933 by William Effinger, the company was quite progressive in producing quality kits - it was likely the Berkeley 'Buccaneer' was the first gas powered model in kit form. In the later 1930s, Effinger acquired the services of a very talented Henry Struck. Struck went on to design numerous award-winning kits under the Berkeley name. Berkeley weathered the post WWII recession and emerged as a major kit producer in the late 1940 and 1950s. These were great years for Berkeley and they produced some incredible and large kits. The company went bankrupt in about 1960 however. Fox engines (Duke Fox) bought the company and released the kits alongside his own FOX models and engines. This arrangement did not last, and in the early 1960s the Berkeley name disappeared from hobby shop shelves.

Wen-Mac Wen-Mac 1957 Chevrolet 'Funny Car' Track Racer - 12 inch long Gasoline Powered Racer, 1/17

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: No Box

Sold   

From about 1964. This is the popular gas powered '57 Chevy with a metal frame, Wen-Mac motor, plastic body with chrome plated parts and real rubber tires. This example does not include the box but is in otherwise exceptional condition. I do not think that it was run more than once or twice then it was stored in a climate controlled environment. The chassis is not rusted and appears almost as new, as is the motor and gas tank. The exterior of the car is as new with no cracks, no broken parts, excellent factory-painted '7 B/GS' on the doors and mint 'Delco Shock Special' decal on the deck lid. The chrome is excellent and I would grade it 8 out of 10. All four wheel knock-offs are intact and tire wear is minimal - you molding line on the rear drag slicks is still evident. The interior and driver are as new, and the clear front and rear windshields are very good also.
