Classic Soap Box Derby Films on DVD

Price: $14.97     SKU: A151     Qty:


The soap box derby was a magical time in a boy's life. The building of the soap box car and the excitement of the race was a wonderful and special time in his life. This collection of two films and a newsreel clip will bring back these exciting memories of yesteryear, showing the joy children could have in simpler times when they spent days and weeks building and testing a project car culminating in an exciting high speed race down the track.

Here are the contents of each of the films in the Soap Box Derby film collection:

All American Soap Box Derby (1936)


This is the official film of an early soap box derby tournament at Derby Downs in Akron, Ohio. It was sponsored by General Motors as a tribute to the All-American Boy.
