A.F. Product Gallery: Track: #730

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:730
Road Name:Bumpers
Year Introduced:1946
The #730 Bumper was produced from 1946 through 1956 and has three variations. The first variation (not shown) is bluish-green in color. The second and third are shown in the photo. The most common is made of green plastic while the rarest made in 1951 only was made of red plastic. Note to collectors: reproductions of the red plastic model have been made. The one characteristic to identify a real red variation from a reproduction is that the real model has the wording "American Flyer by Gilbert Co New Haven Conn U.S.A." embossed on the rear like all of the green variations (see Photo #2).
