1950s Lusse Skooter Bumper Car

Retro Staff |  Comments

One of the 3 electric-powered cars that we restored under VintageVending, this bumper car was produced by Philadelphia’s Lusse Brothers. The company began as a supplier of rollercoaster parts for Philadelphia Toboggan. When the owners, Joseph and Robert Lusse, saw the popularity of the recently invented bumper car rides, they decided to make a go of producing their own version. Over the years, they acquired 9 different patent designs for bumper cars, or Skooters, as they called them.Lusse Bumper Car

This item is not for sale. We show restored items in our museum for viewing, information and to further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also just want to share the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.
