I received a Prop Rod for my 10th birthday in 1959. Had a lot of fun  with that teather car running in a 30' dia. circle. At some point the body was broken beyond repair. the The alum. frame and wheels just sat till about a month ago. I dug it out and made a replacement body out of an old fence board. It runs great and draws attention each time I take it out. Dad would be happy to see it still running. He raced teather cars in the 30's.Prop Rod Project Prop310

Not bad for an old fence board!! Prop Rod was my first Cox toy about the same year. We ran it hard in the street. I probably died from dirt in the engine, can't remember that part.

Old number 88 looks great.

What does it weigh?

She weighs in at 24OZ. not sure what a stock prop rod weighs. Back in the day I remember we added some lead to keep the car stable. Watching some slow motion video, #88 does it's share of bouncing and dancing as it goes around. Small Cox Logo
