1970 is a small wind up metal car.
This is a wind up car which does not require a key. Simply pull on the small lever and see you car whizz away at quite some speed.
Made from painted sheet metal.
Jesco von Puttkamer, its designer and producer, began in 1999 to manufacture these car models from the remains of industrial production and other metal products. His 42 square-meter workshop, a factory based on an early industrial model, emerged in the rooms of a former butcher shop where almost 100 years ago life and work were combined in a confined space. Currently known as ‘Deutschland’s kleinest Autofabrik’. Germany’s smallest car manufacturer.
These cars, a mixture of art and design, with their archaic and simple optics are not only a toy for the young ones but pieces of collection for adults.
