Looks like it was designed by Raymond Loewy.

Varney V-2 7 pole motor. At the time quite expensive @ $21.00 a copy.

Considering when this was made, I assume it is O scale sized. With today's manufacturing capabilities, I wonder if it could be made in HO or even N scale?

Size and picture are deceptive. It's actually HO. Got a V-3 coming from a friend in California. Exposed shaft as opposed to enclosed drive mechanism.

A penny adds perspective. It's not as huge as pictured in the sellers ad. Not sure what to do with it. Source the parts or just get a small plastic display case and look at it.

On the down side I just received this ebay buy. Ad touted it as a good runner.
