1930s aluminium race car model.

A 1930s innovation, the first Bantam Midget model car originally belonged to a trend of 'spindizzies and 'tether' cars.

Originally handmade and fitted with a model air plane engine, the cars raced on a wooden track and as the speed increased, children would have to turn around in record speed to watch their car on the track, hence the term 'spin' - 'dizziness'.

Steeped in history, this nostalgic replica of the Bantam Midget is an eclectic addition to add character to your bookshelf or study space.

Exquisitely hand sculpted from aluminium with accents of painted red, it stays true to the original design, however as the Authentic Models Bantam is now a retired racer, there's no risk of you falling victim to the spin-dizzies.

Artisan crafted with meticulous care by skilled craftsmen, each item is unique and slight variations in appearance are to be expected and celebrated as no two items are exactly alike.
