Beautiful tethered car powered with Cox engine at Craftsmanship Museum:

"Cox W-196 Racer Manufactured by Cox

This replica of the #8 Karl Kling’s 1954 Cox Racer Grand Prix Mercedes W-196 is a rear wheel drive tether car utilizing a drive-shaft and differential and powered by a Cox model Tee Dee .049 engine. Manufactured at the Cox plant in Santa Ana, California, this is the last W-196 tether car made at the end of the limited one-year production run in 1961. At the end of the run, employees were instructed to make all the cars they could until the parts ran out. A family friend who worked at the Cox plant when the production run ended told Rich that this was the last W-196 she completed. Knowing that Rich used to run a W-196, she gave him this W-196 to replace the one he had crashed. Being one of the last cars assembled at the factory, it was missing the packaging, tether handle, and driver. Rich recognized that this W-196 was a one-of-a-kind and never ran it or even started the engine.

Indeed beautiful car Levent. I have never seen a differential gear in such a small car...what beautiful detailing! ..but the Museum mistook the engine that is in fact a Babe Bee and not a Tee Dee...
