Frank Lockhart, probably one of the best racing drivers and race car designers the US ever had, designed and built this very advanced car that used a fraction of the engine size and power of current LSR vehicles. It also proved as fast as the other contenders at Daytona, Ray Keech with the White Triplex and Malcolm Campbell with his new Blue Bird (see Ugo Fadini n.7). Then, on 25 April 1928 a tire failure caused a fatal accident in which Lochart lost his life.
This model was produced in 300 numbered pieces and is still considered a fully accurate replica of the real car. It was based on drawings by the original body designer, Myron Stevens.
This was the first model to be delivered mounted on a wooden base as in the photo and accompanied by a detailed historical leaflet.
