Look Ma, No Hands!
Well My dad and I drove pretty much to the Canadian border today to pick this beauty up! Was hidden in the attic of a garage for 60 plus years! The gentleman I got it from was cleaning out his mother’s house after she passed earlier this year and found it in the garage attic, It belonged to his older brother. Trying to figure out what the 5’s are from. The paint work is really neat not some homemade deal and there’s no hard tape lines or anything. It feels super smooth on the body just like the original graphics do. We’re thinking it may have been a carnival or amusement ride at some point? But it’s so straight and not beat up that that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense either . Regardless we’re stoked to have it! Never bought one over the years because of all the repop junk, so it was really cool to find such a time capsule! Anyone happen to be holding a right elevator ? Would love to find an original, if not I’ll have a friend of mine paint and patina one to match as closely as possible.
