Description
Decorative object - Cutaway model of an internal combustion engine - 1950-1960
Good - 35×20.3×16.5 cm - Aluminium

An excellent cutaway demonstration model of a single cylinder petrol engine, standing 35cm tall and weighing 1627g, the crankshaft hand operated by a crank at the rear, with functioning spark plug (if connected to a battery) that ignites exactly when the piston reaches its highest point. A cutaway carburator and air intake to the left demonstrate at a most basic level how the engine works. Probably of German manufacture, 1950's.

Condition: Generally very good. Some very small cracks in the aluminium air/petrol mix intake. Minor wear commensurate with age.

This lot will be carefully packaged and sent by registered and insured mail.
