    Description

    Circa 1980 Miniature Racing Car--Indy Roadster #12. Custom built by Ed "Jake" La Motta, a skilled patternmaker, of Nutley, New Jersey who built a very low volume of miniature race cars. The scale model is 11 .5" long, 5.5" wide and 3.5" tall. Built as a tribute to driver Eddie Sachs and his Offy powered Dean Van Lines Special, which finished in 2nd place behind A.J. Foyt in the 1961 Indy 500. Eddie Sachs started on the pole as the fast qualifier. Great detail was given to manufacturing the Indy Roadster which includes hand painted number and graphics. Each car has a serial number and is designed to accept a scale engine. Model is in excellent condition with a slight paint chip on the bottom.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
