Description

Texaco Plane Coin Bank

This collectible, titled “1930 Travel Air  Model R Mystery Ship”, was released by Ertl in 1997 as 5th in the series from the Wings of Texaco collection.

It is a detailed 1:32 scale model of a wire-braced, low-wing racing airplane. The wings are red and the body is white with red stripes.

This item is a replica of the “Texaco 13” aircraft displayed at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. Accordingly, it says “Texaco No. 13” on the side, “NR 1313” on the left-wing, and has the 1930s Texaco Logo on the right-wing.

The Texaco Plane Coin Bank is in excellent condition. It makes a perfect gift for collectors, aviation buffs, and model plane enthusiasts.

In the ’30s, Texaco sponsored a new aircraft that was being developed by Travel Air designer Herb Rawdon and pilot Frank Hawks (considered the “fastest airman in the world” for breaking aviation records during WWI).

That aircraft was referred to as the “Mystery Ship” because Hawks and Rawdon were very secretive about the details while it was being built.
