M&E SPECIAL TETHER CAR OF EXMOUTH DEVON

ORIGINAL M&E SPECIAL This is an M&E Special, supplied by M&E Models of Exmouth, Devon, who manufactured an extensive range of other models and accessories. Only two types of car were produced, the simple 'C'Class Wasp and a larger car for motors around 5-6cc. This car was supplied with a standard chassis and running gear with optional body styles, the Challenger, and Special as seen with the rear mounted motor, and scale ERA and Austin as special orders, usually with mid mounted motors. The cars were produced from 1947 for just a couple of years and the approximate age can be determined from a serial number on the rear chassis frame. Starting at 1,000, the early versions had the number on a small copper disc, while later ones had the number stamped into the frame. Often a body number is stamped into the wood and the aluminium bonnet(hood), but this will not match the car as they start from 1. The rear axles are split, with susension on both axles, and a linkage to steer the wheels to run the car in a circle. Drive to the front axle is via a two shoe centrifugal clutch, and a sprung loaded drive shaft to a completely machined bevel gearbox. The cars is supplied with a Bowden cable bridle, and brackets that could be bolted to either side of the car to allow running in either direction. The ignition cut off however will only work for one direction. To save potential damage, the threads on the axles and in the wheels are handed.
