This is a collection of authentic hand-crafted pewter replicas of world famous sports cars.
Each sports car is an authentically scaled replica, hand-crafted in fine pewter, prized among collectors for its elegance and sculptural precision. Each replica is faithful in every respect to the original sports car.
It is the replicas' unusually generous size - up to five inches in length and weighing up to twelve ounces - that enables the craftsmen to capture every detail of each car: From spoked wheels to fintails and hood straps...elegant lines of interior upholstery...tire treads...bumper styles...headlight expressions and unique ornamentation.
The cars selected for this collection are among the most famous ever: Italy's 1931 Alfa Romeo 6C1750 Zagato Spider - legendary for its "seat of the pants" steering and spine-tingling acceleration...the popular 1953 Austin-Healey 100 - rich with traditional British styling and craftsmanship...England's 1952 Allard J2X - brutish, noisy, hard-riding and a ferocious competitor...the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette - glamorous and stylish, but boasting a 360 horsepower fuel-injected engine.
The United States, Germany, Italy, France, Great Britain, and Sweden are all represented. The 1923 Ford Mercury Ames Speedster...the 1935 Mercedes Benz 500-K Special Roadster...the 1952 Ferrari 212 Barchetta...the 1957 Porsche Speedster... all these sports cars and more are included in this magnificent collection.
There is also a '51 MG-TD...a '53 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster...'57 Volvo 1800S...'63 Jaguar XKE Roadster...'71 Pantara...'37 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic...'30 Packard Boat-Tail 734...'56 Ford Thunderbird.
Some windshields are slightly warped, but can probably be bent to original position. The windshields and sideview mirrors are the most delicate parts of these cars, and can be harmed by shipping.
Original boxes are not available, but all original paperwork, certificates of ownership, detailed descriptions of each car are included with the collection. Original cost of each car was $49 and they have sat peacefully in a display cabinet in a non-smoking home, for over 25 years.
If anyone is particularly interested in a single car, please contact me and we will consider any purchases from the collection.
