The Schuco Patent 3000 Fernlenk, Telesteering car was made by Schuco starting in 1938. This model was made in the US Zone of Germany after the Second World War. It is 4 1/4" long and is made of pressed tinplate with a lithographed tin base. It has a clockwork motor with telesteering unit for games on the table or on the ground. The telesteering takes a wire with a rubber connection that attaches at the connection on the roof. The card is steered by a "steering wheel" attached to the wire. It has four speeds and when the car is lifted.
This set comes with wooden blocks for an obstacle course, two metal discs (I assume for part of the course) and a tin holder for the pieces. It also comes with a second wire that says "long wire for running on the floor" and the steering column and key.
This powder blue car is in very good vintage condition with no chipped paint and only some rust on a small portion of the grill (see photos).
This car will come in an hand-made display box with a clear cover.
A rare toy in great condition!
