Wind Up Tin Toy Classic Sunbeam Record Car
Classic sunbeam record car BY St John's.
The Sunbeam 1000 HP was the first non-American car to run on Daytona Beach for a land speed record attempt. On 29 March 1927, Henry Segrave drove the car to a new land speed record of 203.79 miles per hour (327.97 km/h), the first car to reach a speed over 200 mph (320 km/h).
Every tin toy starts out as a flat sheet of metal that is printed and then cut into separate pieces. Each piece is then formed into its final shape through numerous tooling stations. The pieces are then hand-assembled to create the final toy. So, minor marks and paint flaws can occur. All tin toys are produced in the same style as they were in the 1950s and ’60s.
