This is a pretty nice original and very hard find Vacuum Rotor engine commonly called a “flame-licker” made by the Rotor Corporation of America in Dayton, Ohio. It is fresh from an early engine and mechanical toy collectors estate It seems to be in good condition with no cracks, breaks, or repairs that I can see. It turns over nicely and everything seems to move as it should. It has a good amount of original paint and plating on it and also has the original whistle which is usually missing. It is missing the flame hood which should be pretty easy to make and also the wick in the burner. This should be pretty easy to find or make something work. It measures about 4 1/2 x 9 x 6 1/2 inches tall. It has a 4 1/2 inch flywheel on it. It would be a great addition to your early mechanical toy collection or hot air collection. These original are awfully tough to find in the wild anymore so don’t miss your chance on it. The pictures tell the story. You’ll like it.
