Two Vintage Sela kids coin operated electric race cars Lotus Benetton Camel F1
Vintage Sela kids coin operated electric race cars - one working + one not. On offer here is a pair of electric racing cars for kids, I would guess by the type and style of the sponsors logos, dating from the mid 80s. We discovered these cars covered in straw and chicken shit in the deep, dark corners at the back of a neighbours barn. When we dragged them out into the daylight we were immensely gratified to find that they were in such good condition - so we set to work to restore them. One, the green Benetton car, is complete and is now in good working condition - we bought a new Exide battery, cleaned and lubricated everything, rewired the operating system with a single switch now located in the recess on the right hand side and disconnected the noise unit and coin in the slot mechanism. Both of which are still present but beyond our pay-grade to restore. The second car, a yellow Camel and Elf badged Lotus which has no motor and is included for spares or repair. The motor is a 12v Mobility scooter item and is readily available anywhere. Ideal as decorative items for the man cave, garage, club or restaurant or, as the ultimate present for your son, daughter, grandchild or the biggest kid on your present list. They are well engineered and made items designed to withstand the kind of treatment they would get in a kids Racing Circuit attraction in a popular shopping centre and go on working for years and years without breaking.
It is, in a word, (OK two or three words) Very solidly made. The kind of things normally described as built like a brick outhouse. Please see the photos which are all of the pair of cars on offer and form part of the description. Collection Were located in Sunny South Devon, in Bickington, three miles from Newton Abbot, (mid way between Exeter and Plymouth) and just a mile off the A38 Expressway - you can come to look or collect for free any day at any reasonable time by arrangement.
