ORIGINAL IVES BLACK DIAMOND #241 CLUB CAR. In 1928, Ives was ready to introduce their new Crack Passenger Train, The Candidate Special. It was to be finished with dull black sides and brilliant red roofs. For the purpose of display, the then new 1134R was to be finished in a Bright Nickel plate. Unfortunately, only prototypes of these cars were produced as on July 31, 1928 Lionel and American Flyer acquired ownership of the company!
Apparently, the notion of producing these spectacular cars was implemented using standard production American Flyer President Special type cars. The set was offered in 1928-29.
This #241 Club Car has obviously been well played with, but is 100% original with no touch-ups! My listings today will include a #243 Observation, with totally original sides but a expertly restored roof (it had been painted an incorrect shade of red) with an exact color match.
