Pocher Itala 35/45 CV. 1907 Peking to Paris Race Winner, 1/8

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$1400   

Very, Very Rare. One of 350 made. Very highly detailed, large scale kit with about 600 parts. Features full engine, rolling chassis, cockpit and much more. The kit has never been started. Inside, the kit has never been touched and is as it left the factory. All the parts that were factory sealed (which is almost all of them) are still factory sealed. The few that were not sealed have been inventoried complete. Please note that the original paint condition ranges from 'excellent' to 'poor.' One plastic piece has two clean breaks but is complete and a straight-forward repair. This kit is fragile and sold as a collectible only. Thanks to Giovanni Ingrao and Scalemotorcars for the following information: This kit is the forerunner of all large-scale Pocher car kits. From 1972 to 1979, Ar-Po (Arnaldo Pocher) produced quality train accessories. But in May of 1981 Arnaldo, with help from his son-in-law Adelmo Canali (a famous Italian model maker), set out to create the their first car kit: The Peking-Paris race winner, Itala 35/45 CV. from 1907. They started production in 1983 and sold it under the name brand "Metrop - Produced by AR-Po." Production was limited to 350 kits. It is a very highly detailed kit with parts in plastic, wood (where the real car had wood), pewter, brass, copper, aluminum, steel, leather and more. It is very highly detailed, like the future Pocher kits. Arnaldo Pocher died in a tragic accident in 1989.

The headlights also operate. The batteries are cleverly hidden under the front seat.

Bandai 1910 M-40 Flyabout Thomas Flyer, 1/16, 0504275

Originally, the Thomas Motor Company was building bicycles in the 1890s as so may other automakers did. Erwin Ross Thomas, the founder, was experimenting with high speed gasoline engines. From 1898 to 1900 they built commercial engines and gasoline powered tricycles. Then Thomas moved to motorcycles, creating the "Auto-Bi", which was the first practical motorcycle commercially built in the USA. By 1902 he was the largest manufacture of motorcycles. Very shortly after this, the first Thomas Car, the "Buffalo Junior" was produced and 100 sold the first year. The Thomas was originally an advanced car and well known for it's high speed. In 1906, E.R. Thomas entered his cars in the Vanderbilt Cup and Glidden Trophy. The Thomas completed the 2000 mile tour without any mechanical adjustments. That year saw further race victories. In 1907 Thomas had several models with a new four cylinder engine; the G70 from that year was known as the fastest production car in the world. At this time, Rolls-Royce made some public statements about the superiority of the 6 cylinder engine. This caused E.R. Thomas to challenge Rolls Royce to a race from NY to Chicago - Rolls Royce, however, backed out. But four European manufactures took Thomas up on his challenge, and the Paris newspaper Le Matin sponsored the great event for 1908. This race laid a course from Buffalo, NY to San Francisco, then to Alaska down the Yukon across the Bering Strait on ice, then rerouted to Japan due the thaw, to Siberia and then across Europe to Paris. The Thomas entry was a stock Touring car with George Schuster as the driver. After 169 days and 21,000 miles, the Thomas was the winner. Today it is still considered one of the greatest automobile races ever.
