Please let me know when this is back in stock!

Spindizzies, also known as tether cars, were the boys’ toys of the 1930s.

Surprisingly sophisticated racecars in 1:8 scale raced tethered to a pole or to a chain track in a banked wooden racetrack, reaching speeds in excess of 150 mph… Imagine a corner of the 1939 New York World’s Fair. A throng of thousands massing around a mini car-drome where racecars are being prepared for a major race. The scream of the engines fills the air. A mini NASCAR, Le Mans, Nürbürgring… An American pastime; technology, cars, excitement!

Constructed using original blueprints this BB Korn Indianapolis 1930s Spindizzy model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. One look and you’ll be ready to join the competition. The model is handbuilt of recycled polished aluminum and brass. The seat and trim are leather. The wheels are aluminum and the tires are made of rubber.

This car does not have a running engine it is for display only. The car was designed without any working drive train, flywheel, or geared rear end. This model is brand new and fully assembled.

Its original makers were the famous Dooling Brothers, who manufactured around 1000 units at the time. They were offered to aficionados of the famous Dooling spin-dizzies, miniature motorized racecars that reached dizzying speeds. They were closely modeled on the famous Mercedes Silver Arrows of the early 1930s. Originals are now rare and highly prized by collectors. Molded with the same exacting detail as its original, our 12.2″ Indy racer is hand-cast in airplane aluminum. Hand polished and buffed to a high shine, it features a detailed dashboard, faux leather seat, steering wheel and brake. In keeping with its original model-toy character, the front wheels are not linked to the steering wheel. The wheel hubs and rubber tires are made with the same exact detail as the original. Enjoy a truly unique piece of Grand Prix history. This shiny, sleek desktop racer represents both the romance and the dramatic beauty of the most famous Grand Prix racers ever!
