1940's Toy Founders Inc. Kar-Kit Art Deco Windup Motorized Model Kit

Rare 1940's Toy Founders Inc. Kar-Kit Art Deco Windup Model Kit, made in Detroit from 1945 to 47. I believe the kit is complete, inc. the motor. You could build several different vehicles out of the kit, which is why it came with a variety of different parts. Live Auctioneers estimated that the set is worth $750.00 in 2014. I would consider this is a higher end quality set.

This was originally found with an almost complete car already built. I thought it best to leave it intact, as its probably safer to ship. Car itself is rather heavy. To find a set with the original box is almost impossible. It's only been out of the box for photos, I haven't done anything else to it. Extremely rare piece of Detroit Automotive history.

Shipping is Priority Mail.
