Description:
MOTORIZED SCALE MODEL LANCIA FERRARI D-50 GRAND PRIX CAR SIGNED BY FANGIO
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

Condition Report*:

Appears fine and unused.  The model was intended for limited production of 25, though this is the only example known finished in Ferrari racing colrs and decals.  Actual production numbers are unknown.  Has radio control capability, hand unit and radio match.  No driver figure.  Operational condition unknown and untested.  A truly extraordinary and impressive model.
