Speed Kings 1966
Prescott Confectionery Motoring Speed Kings 1966 Speed Kings 1966 L36 - This set is billed as the “thrills and spills of speed kings” and there are plenty of card featuring illustrations of cars crashing, catching fire etc., but as if that were not enough the set also includes the ‘new Bluebird jet’ (1966), the ‘Avenger’ which Paula Murphy used to set a new woman’s land speed record, the ‘Spirit of America’ and ‘Bluebird which broke land speed records and the ‘Whispering Ghost’ a Rover gas turbine car which took part in the 1965 Le Mans 24-hour race. What really sets this apart is the inclusion of artists impressions of future vehicles such as rocket looking dragsters, a police car of 2066 and an automated car. Automated cars are of course already in production, but we have to say they look quite boring compared to the example show on card 16 with its nose cone and huge glass panel, indeed if the actual cars looked more like this everyone would be clamouring to have one! A fascinating set, complete with checklist, which is backed by plenty of interesting snippits. Size 77 x 57mm.
