SOLID FUEL MOTORBOAT CAR
|Built 1962-63. Red molded flat with white heat stamped LIONEL on sides. 6511-2 the correct frame. AAR trucks. The load is a white hulled boat with a brown deck. To prepare for launch, the jet nozzle is removed from its housing at the rear of the hull, warm tap water is poured into the housing, then 4 or 5 fuel pellets are popped into the housing and the nozzle is reinstalled. You hold your thumb over the nozzle and shake the whole thing. This was to create enough gas to propel the boat about 10 feet.
