|The design of the Miller Car body, with its sleek boat shaped rear, fired the imagination of the European designers who were quick to copy the idea. The design of the engine and transmission was just as revolutionary. The power was taken from the front of the engine, like an aircraft, and passed through the gearbox and differentia/ units and then via half shafts and constant velocity joints to power the front wheels.|
|In our working scale model we have captured all of these design innovations and powered the car with a large clockwork motor. This beautiful 1:8 scale model measures 19 inches long and is built from pressed steel and cast metal, and weighs 3.2 kilograms. The model features working leaf spring independent suspension, working steering and the authentic drive transmission from the clockwork motor to the front wheels.|
The models are available in a choice of five racing colours, black, white, red, green, and yellow and each
Miller Car comes complete with a driving figure constructed with moveable head and arms so that the
driver can be posed in a suitable action position.
The Miller Car is priced at (GBP) £199.99 + £10.00 (P&P). Orders should be sent with full payment to Gilbow (Holdings) Ltd at the address below.
