Additional Product Information

Up for sale here is a beautiful 1970's? Custom Home Built 60 size Tether Car display model.  It appears to be loosely based on the famous Bunch Speed Demon.  The body and frame construction is wood, with some steel, brass, and copper parts elsewhere on the car as well.  It is only a display model, as there is no working gearbox in this car.  This car measures approximately 19 inches long, 9 inches wide at the front axle, and 7 inches tall at the front of the drivers driver's compartment.  The engine is an original early model Bunch Mighty Midget, and is currently gummed up enough to stop from being turned.  However, if memory serves, it did turn freely and had good compression prior to me installing it a few years ago.  As you can see in the pictures, the car does show its age a little, but is in very nice condition considering how old it is, and displays well with its slight patina.  The aluminum hood is nicely formed and fitted, and the copper exhaust pipe fits beautifully, but does need to be finished and attached to the engine.  The tires appear to be Dooling repro, and are in excellent, soft, round condition.  Light surface corrosion on most of the steel parts.  This will make for a great project, or just display it as-is.  Please look at all the pictures as they should be considered part of the description.  Please feel free to as any questions.
