Bimbo Racer electric pedal car body Ferrari Michelotti :
$475

You are offerding on the body of a Bimbo Racer electric car imported from Italy. The car design has been credited to Ferrari designer Giovanni Michelotti and was was first built in Italy around 1956. The body is approx 63" long by 26" wide and will accomodate a small to average size adult sitting down. I originally bought this body to turn it into a vintage sidecare for an Aermacchi motorcycle I own. While watching "CHASING CLASSIC CARS" on the discovery channel they featured a restoration of a similar Bimbo Racer. I would now rather sell the body to someone who could restore or display it, vs. modifying it as originally planned.

Value: I'm not sure what the body is worth, I have seen recent sale results of the complete cars. A fully restored Bimbo Racer sold for $17,843 at Bonhams. Another one sold for $6,325 in an RM sale. My reserve is no where near even the lowest price, these are just shared to show you what the sale prices are for restored Bimbo Racers.

There are some parts available on the web, like badges, and with some additional searching you can find similar or reproduction wheels from pedal cars of that era. The original motors were car starters powered by an automotive battery and would be easy to source.

Condition: The car body overall is in really solid condition for an older piece. It does have some surface hazing and cracking, and would need painting. There are cuts in the dash and inside lower cowl on the inderside of the car, but these are clean cuts, without missing pieces. It would be a simple fix to resin glue these up when you did the surface preparation for painting. The car also has a fiberglass grill piece that needs finishing and a metal trim piece that fits around the grill opening (see pictures)

The car body is sold "as is" and is a great canditate for restoration. or addding to aFerrari collectors items. It is also great as a decorative arts or display piece.

Shipping is the full responsibility of the buyer. I would be willing to carton for an additional $75 dollars and take to a local Freight Terminal of your choice.

Good luck offerding on this rare and unique part of Italian car and Ferrari designer history.
