Model 1A
Serial #2028811
Made in Canada
14 in. carriage

With a head on it like a Beluga whale, the Super-Speed isn't much to look at, but it's a natural performer. I particularly like the spring-loaded trap door covering its back end that allows for quick access to the escapement and drawband drum.
