Only issued once, not many seem to have survived.  Larger than 1/25 scale, some boxes (not mine) list the scale as 1/17 or 1/18.


Did it come It come with a car or as a kit by itself?

It was just a kit by itself made for the Chicago World's Fair, by AMT for FORD

I have a built up in my collection that can easily be restored.

I scored one awhile back. The box is roached out (it's barely intact enough to hold the contents. i should probably put it in a container so i don't lose anything.)

I want to build one with the working "levitation" feature

I had one of those when it was first issued. It was a lot more fun if you hooked it up to the blower port of a vacuum cleaner instead of personally blowing through the tube but it still got old before too long. It could probably be made into some kind of a futuristic kustom and be more fun!
