This Thimble Drome tether car unit includes a gear-driven axle and a fuel tank attached to the engine. It would have been used to power a non-steering tether car. Even the rubber tires are in pretty good shape considering the age. This model is in original condition. The dust has been cleaned off, but it hasn’t been polished, and the compression is good.
