Notes

Another First for QDT! This is a very scarce MIRACO model, finished in light green , with one-piece wheels/tyres. The clockwork mechanism works well so the car can perform the impossible due to the clever way it has been designed!
On the base, there are five wheels: the four as one would expect but also a small rubber-tyred wheel in the middle. This middle one is perpendicular to the other four and sits right in front of the rear wheels in the middle. So the miracle occurs as the car moves along and perhaps teeters over the edge of a table or shelf, for instance. The front of the car may hang over the edge just a little but the little wheel in the centre drives the car to one side, so preventing the car from falling to the floor! Miraculous!

Raised MIRACO lettering above the radiator and a tinplate base with ‘TEKNO DENMARK’ printed.
Few little marks to the finish and the front bumper is rather dulled.
