If you enjoy the work of the Art Deco masters such as
Erte, the Franklin Mint's lastest release will reaffirm all the
reasons that this unique period of art history captured the
public's attention. This is a one-of-a-kind replica, based
on the successful showing of the "original" prototype at
the Franklin Mint Museum last year. This represents the
skills of FM designers, Raffi Minasian and Roger
Hardnock, in evoking the legend of the custom
coachwork of the pre-World War II period.
Our model is the largest 1:24 replica car ever issued by
FM, painted in two-tone lilac and silver with apple green
metallic accents. It has the usual operating features, and
the Duesy 320 hp engine is fully plumbed. A special touch is the crystal clear steering wheel.
If you were unable to see the original exhibit at the Museum, this model gives you the chance to share in the fun. If you
were there in person, then this is the ideal "souvenir." The current price is $175.
[Note: This is not a replica of an actual car, but rather is a labor of love, created by the FM Design Staff who imagined what it would be like to craft a custom vehicle back in the 30's.]
