    Walt Disney World rocketship car from the "StarJets" attraction in Tomorrowland. ca. 1974) Vintage original rocketship ride car from the classic Disney World "spinner" attraction. Measuring 115 x 60 x 30 in. and constructed of cast fiberglass shell over metal conveyance chassis. The body of the rocket is expertly painted in weather-proof, high gloss finish. With characteristic Disney-studio attention to detail, like 3-rear rocket boosters, space aged fins, graphic numbers and striping embellishments and gold-painted window panel graphics on the nose cone. The cabin of the craft features cast fiberglass tandem seating with textured granite-colored surface. A large notch is found in the undercarriage of the vehicle to accommodate attachment of the 20 ft. arm to the revolving and elevating hub of the the ride, which lifted riders a full 80 ft. off the ground to circle the hub. The ride delighted countless guests between its opening in 1974 to when the attraction was retired in 1994, redesigned and reopened as the "Astro Orbiter". Rare in any state, this vehicle remains in vintage fine condition.
