1/16 Revell 1917 Ford Model T - Pull-Toy with Backfire Action
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Poor
For the advanced Revell collector. Revell was a toy maker long before they teamed with Gowland & Gowland for the first Highway Pioneers series that revolutionized the hobby of mainstream model building. Revell's associated with Gowland went back to the pure toy days before injection molded models. One such creation in 1950 was a large scale 1/16 Maxwell automobile. The toy was a huge success. Then the Highway Pioneers took off...but Revell was not ready to give up on toys yet. In 1952 they issued a 1/16 scale counterpart to the Maxwell- this 1917 Model T Ford. It has a very unique features - when you pull the tow cord, it backfires! On the bottom is a cap gun style mechanism and the 'bang!' is made by real gunpowder from caps. The Ford is in perfect condition. There are no cracks, warps, missing parts or scratched paint. it is a little dirty, however. On the underside, the cap mechanism is as new and works flawlessly. The box is poor - it is tattered and missing the top. The instructions on both sides for the cap loading are still legible.
