Length 38-1/2 inches (97.8 cm)
Superbly built by Ron Phillips and Jeron Classics, a limited edition exquisitely detailed hand-made 1.4 scale radio control Lancia-Ferrari fitted with a single cylinder, fan-cooled engine made in Germany by Bernhardt GmbH, putting out 1.5 hp at 15,000 rpm and reputed potential top speed of 100 mph. Features include rear wheel drive through centrifugal clutch and driveshaft, hydraulic disc brakes, working quick action fuel intake, hand made wire wheels each with 36 spokes, semi-pneumatic rubber tires, wood-rim steering wheel and full instrument panel including working tachometer. The removable aluminum body is mounted on stainless steel chassis with full independent suspension from coil springs and tube shocks, perfectly finished in 'rosso corsa' with Scuderia Ferrari decals. The engine cowling lifts to reveal both the engine and signature of Argentine racing legend and Formula 1 Hall of Fame member Juan Manuel Fangio (1911-1995) placed boldly on the underside. Fangio was World Champion with Enzo Ferrari's team in 1956, and beat this car a year later racing with Maserati. Presented in custom wood and glass display case with table base.
Provenance: Jeron 1996. Museum acquisition 412-1996
