Lot Details
From a Prominent European Collection,
c.1950 Chieftan Wizzer
Engine no. H-123261E
The Whizzer was immensely popular in its day, particularly with teenagers, but could not compete with more-modern Japanese lightweights and consequently it disappeared in the mid-1950s. Today the Whizzer enjoys cult status and is highly sought after by collectors.

This example appears to be an export or perhaps a European-built example. It is in good, complete, and original condition.
