Description

1956 Chevrolet Corvette Sebring Special gas powered 2/3 scale child's car, finished in white with blue stripes to match the Corvette Special that came first in class and 9th overall at the 1956 12 Hours of Sebring race with John Fitch and Walt Hansgen at the wheel.

This custom-made 2/3 scale child's car version is powered by a 107cc, air-cooled and electrically started gas single cylinder engine linked to a 3-speed manual with reverse. Four-wheel suspension complements rear brakes with a parking brake. Detailed inside and out with working doors, lights, signals, and horn, it can be driven with gusto by 'kids' up to six feet tall and 225 pounds.
