Pyro Auburn 1935 Supercharged 851 Boattail Speedster, 1/25, 228

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Rare true first issue with the 'black' box style, beautiful art and woodgrain sides - it even includes the bathing beauty shown on the box top. Features detailed engine, hinging/opening hood, good interior detail and five piece scale woman driver. Molded in gloss deep red plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This was one of Pyro's first car kits. On the side, there are color illustrations of the Lincoln Continental, Duesenburg Roadster J, Cord Convertible and Pierce Silver Arrow. Interestingly, the Duesenburg and Pierce Arrow in 1/24 scale were projected; for one reason or another Pyro never cut the molds so they were never issued. The '35 Auburn weighed 4200 lbs. and was one of the few cars of that time to have hydraulic brakes. Power came from a 150hp (@4000) supercharged engine with three inch exhaust pipes that easily sped the car to over 100 mph. Ab Jenkins set a record with a stock issue 851 at Bonneville Salt Flats in July of 1935, and became the first one to pilot a stock car for over 12 hours at an average of over 100 mph.

Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

De Kalb Toys Jeep / Napkin Holder / Steam Locomotive / Dump Truck / Farm Tractor / Candy Server / Candle Stick / Doll Dresser / Planter / Hot Rod (T Bucket), 47

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Early 1950s hardwood home craft kit that can build any of the items listed. Depending on your choices, you can build more than one. Includes large fold-out instructions that includes an illustration of each one, materials list, dimensions and assembly hints. Inside, the box is carefully packed full of hardwood thin boards, two sizes of rectangular hardwood stock, dowels and sandpaper. This is certainly not a pre-fabricated scale kit; you need to do all the cutting and the result is fairly well detailed, sturdy toy(s) or useful table items. It's an ideal project if you wish to do some light wood-working or introduce a youngster to the hobby. Never started and inventoried complete.

Authentikit Vehicles 1903 Overland, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

VERY rare kit from about 1950 and the only large-scale model of this subject. Very well detailed for that time and a rather deluxe model featuring machine cut hardwood parts (many cut to final shape), excellent plastic wheels, brass lanterns, stock brass, stock metal, hardwood dowels and more. With excellent full-size plans including patterns, detail drawings and full text instructions. Even includes a painting guide. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all pieces and paperwork. Authentikit Vehicles was another maker of big 1/16 classic cars and competed with the bigger Hudson Miniatures and Fador. Authentikit simply called their models "Antique Automobile Kits" while Husdon Miniatures called theirs "Old Timers" and Fador called their line "Smallersters." Authentikit Vehicles was located in Coatesville, Pennsylvania and from what I can tell, it was a slightly superior kit to the more common Hudsons and Fadors. Authentikit advertised a "1902 Piece Motorette" on the instructions which could be purchased from a hobby shop or directly from the Pennsylvania office. So far these are the only two I have seen. The models are incredibly rare; to date only one Pierce and one Overland have traded hands publicly over the internet.

Fador 1908 Baker Electric, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare kit dated August of 1950 and very well detailed for that time. Features mainly die-cut, machined and saw-cut wooden parts and excellent plastic wheels and lanterns, metal parts & stock and die-cut cardstock. includes excellent, large full-size fold-out plans with numerous elevations, a great many detail drawings and extensive instructions. The kit has never been started. Inventoried complete with all parts and paperwork present. We think of electric cars of new; nothing could be further from the truth. From 1900 to 1915 at least 25 well-known electric car manufacturers advertised vehicles which '...were clean, quite, stylish and easy to operate - the only car for a lady.' And how true this was! Early automobiles were notoriously noisy with dirty exhaust and the constant requirement to handle smelly gasoline by hand. The Baker Electric was one of the longer ranged models - when all six batteries were fully charge it could travel about 75 miles - acceptable even today for a commute. The wheelbase was 80 inches and it had a convertible top that could be lowered or raised. Fador was another maker of big 1/16 classic cars and competed with the bigger Hudson Miniatures. Fador called the line 'Smallersters' and the design & parts breakdown of the kits are very similar. The full name was Fador Mfg. Company and the address was 501E. Clinton St., Elmira, NY. Hudson Miniatures, launched in 1948, apparently beat Fador to the market by at least a year or more. Hudson's national success probably lead Fador to choose the same subject (antique cars) and in the same scale, 1/16. Hudson snatched up the most obvious classic automobiles for kit subjects, forcing Fador to select very carefully. Fortunately, they chose well and they are still the only models ever made of these subjects. There is no record of Fador making any plastic kits; the introduction and overwhelming popularity of the Revell/Gowland Highway Pioneers and the models that quickly followed probably drove them out of the market. This was the fate of most wooden kit manufacturers who did not make the transition. In 1949 the Fador line consisted of a 1909 Hupmobile Roadster, 1904 Cadillac Runabout, 1905 REO 4 Passenger Runabout and one kit that was "3 In 1' - it made one of the following: 1909 EMF Single Rear Seater, 1909 EMF Touring or EMF Roadster. The Baker Electric kit was introduced in 1950 and possibly others as well.

Hudson Miniatures 1914 Stutz Bearcat - Old Timers, 1/16

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Well detailed, large 1/16 scale kit from 1949. Features plastic wheels, grill, steering wheel, lights and other accessories, wooden and metal main parts and some die-cut cardstock parts as well. Although all of Hudson's 1/16 kits have excellent detail, this one has even more detail than usual thanks to Hudson's engineers having access to the actual car. The instructions even warn that this kit will take more time than usual due to the 'tedious detail.' This kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts, plans and instructions. Hudson Miniatures created a very popular line of automobile kits in a constant 1/16 scale shortly after WWII. The kits sold very well...so well that you could argue that Gowland & Gowland borrowed Hudson's subject matter for their ground-breaking 'Highway Pioneers.' The Hudson Miniatures 'Old Timers' even spawned a line of imitators, with Fador's 'Smallster' being one of the better in quality. Sales did drop on the appearance and popularity of the much smaller (and less accurate) Gowland/Revell 'Highway Pioneers' in 1951. When the all-injection molded Gowland kits proved not to be a passing fad, Hudson quickly planned and released his own all-plastic, small-scale competition called 'Lil' Old Timers Quickie Kits.' The kits were of excellent quality, but it was too little too late. Additionally, sales of the excellent wooden kits faltered further in the next few years with the introduction of accurate, 1/24 and 1/32 all-plastic cars in the mid 1950s. This forced Hudson to discontinue the wood kits and the plastic line was sold to Revell and subsequently re-released. Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. In the mid 1960s Aurora thought so highly of Hudson Miniatures that they purchased the wood kit assets and released a very small number of these in all-plastic models.

Today, these excellent, big 1/16 kits are often the only model available of these early automobiles. The 1911 Mercer Raceabout is one of the rarest American cars. The Mercer was built in Trenton, NJ and powered by a 30 hp T head 4 cylinder engine. Displacement was 300.7 cubic inches and the car had a wet clutch four speed transmission. The car weighed 2,500 lbs and cost $2600 and could do 112 mph. The Mercer was perhaps the most famous sports car of the time. It was rugged, handled very well and had excellent performance.
