Found object outsider art car

Here are several folk art cars made from colored telephone wire and found objects by Clifton Eugene Dale of Galax, VA. He made these c. 1970 as payment for treatment by his local doctor, who was a car collector. Each car is hand made, very detailed, and in very good condition. These are part of a collection of 23 we have available. The cars are colorful, somewhat stylized and idiosyncratic. Mr. Dale's cars are in the collections of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Center and Virginia Historical Society. These are priced individually, with a discount for the group.
