Crescent Cooper Bristol toy racing car

Cooper racing car

Bristol-powered Cooper GP car by The Crescent Toy Co. Ltd

Another classic toy from the fifties that was available in both the Crescent and Dinky ranges of single seater racing cars. The Cooper-Bristol was campaigned under Formula Two regulations in Grand Prix races during the mid 1950s prior to Cooper kicking off the revolutionary switch to rear engined GP cars. Cooper weren't the first company to build rear engined racing cars, but it was they that built the first successful rear engined GP car to compete in postwar motor races.

Measures: 86mm in length. Approximate value 15-20

Colour: blue, solid metal spoke-effect hubs, rubber tyres, loose driver, cream riveted base
