Description – asserted by seller

1911 Marmon Wasp 3/4 Scale Replica, Late model Ford 4-cylinder motor, 4-speed transmission, push-button start and hand activated brakes. This car also comes complete with a 1994 INT Trailer. This car also comes with a separate Black trim with wire wheels for a completely different look.

Winner of the first running of the Indy 500, Ray Harroun earned the victory behind the wheel of his Marmon “Wasp” with a time of 6 hours, 42 minutes, 8 seconds and an average speed of 74.6 mph. An engineer for Marmon, Harroun designed the vehicle—based on the marque’s 6-cylinder Model 32—with a cowled cockpit and a pointed tail section for aerodynamic enhancement. The stinger-like backside along with the yellow and black color selection gave rise to its nickname.

The most innovative element, however, was Harroun’s integration of a car’s first rearview mirror, a component that eliminated the need for a riding mechanic to act as spotter. Harroun and the car would return in 1961 to take a commemorative lap for the race’s 50th anniversary. And in 2011, the car would gain further glory as the subject of a stamp from the U.S. Postal Service-Courtesy of the Robb Report.

This car if a blast to drive and great for car shows, parades or nostalgia racing.
