Petrol-driven Maserati by Domo, 1950
Price Code: ££££
An extremely rare petrol powered racing car toy by Italian maker Domo, with original driver dressed in white racing livery, this example features an internal combustion engine, pneumatic remote control for the steering, funnel for fuel and a starting ramp. The original fitted case features full working and starting instructions, unusually, all in English.
The model is operational, and the engine has been recently started with a glow plug, however this rarity falls within the category of a collector’s item rather than a miniature Grand Prix car! Italian, circa 1950.
Length of toy: 17 inches (43 cm).
We also have available an electrically powered model (can be seen under Ref 3521).
