Scarce 1930s Gunthermann Tinplate Blue Bird Record Car 20.25″ L Pre-War Germany


  • Awesome and pretty Scare Large Scale Pre-War German Racer by Gunthermann!
  • You don’t really see these for sale that often (especially here in the States), and when they do become available they’re gone almost as fast as they arrived!
  • Early 1930s Captain Campbell’s Blue Bird Record Car.
  • Based on the Campbell-Napier-Railton Blue Bird, which hit two lands peed records 1931/1932. Malcolm Campbell was knighted for the first in 1931, and was the first to pass 250mph (400 km/h) in 1932
  • This toy was the proud possession of a young boy in the 30s, and it is even marked on the underside “Property of Ian Leonard”. 


  • Measures a whopping 20-1/4″ Long x 5-1/2″ W x 4-1/2″ H
  • I’m putting “make offer” on this listing, so you should get yours in sooner than later!
