Product Description

A cool kiddies fairground ride car…

Dating to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1980s, this is an original car from ‘The Octopus’ ride situated at Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach. An iconic ride of its time, we are pleased to have two in our possession. Although we have labelled these as waltzer cars, these wouldn’t have originally had wheels. We have added three to the bottom of each car to enable them to be wheeled and move easily. Also, the wheels we have added also lock therefore the chairs can be placed in a certain position in a static position…

This particular car, number 3 is structurally good. Made on a wooden base and fibreglass shell, the car is hand painted in Blue with a Red octopus featured on the rear. It’s a fun and quirky piece with an authentic patina. Great as a display piece or maybe with some TLC a cool addition to the kids room or play room…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. As mentioned, the patina is weathered in general, with surface scars and abrasions, paint chipping and some tatty wood in areas. There is a notable small break to the front left bottom (where some pieces of fibreglass have cracked – as pictured). Although this doesn’t affect the overall structure of the car, this would either need to be removed or simply glued and tidied up. With some care and attention this could easily be replaced too. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : Although we suggest this would be ideal for a kids room or play room, we do not recommend that this is used as a toy in the current condition. Maybe with some TLC these could be ‘child friendly’. For the garden, for the kids, then maybe these are spot on…
