The driver on this car was cast separately from the body.THe wheels are similar in nature (spoke) to those of the Hubley "animated racer". The contrasting gold painted tail and gold painted embossed tailpipes and hood vents certainly make this toy a collectible.
At 11" (279 mm), it was quite heavy, and I can imagine this car travelling a long distance when pushed hard on a road or a long hop use corridor.
THe tail fin is not painted compared with the one below.
I like hpow the driver is bent down as if to simulate a more focussed attention on the dashboard and steering,as well as to avoid the strong wind coming at him as he races.
