1950s Japan ATC Super Deluxe Automatic Lighter - Ronson Whirlwind Clone - Rebuilt, Restored

Sorry, this item has sold.

1950s Japan ATC Super Deluxe Automatic Lighter - Ronson Whirlwind Clone - Rebuilt, Restored. Unusual clone with dual fuel caps, and a center flint spring/screw that allows entire striker mechanism to be slid up and out of the lighter for servicing.

This cigarette lighter had the old flint drilled and removed. A new flint was installed. Wick was trimmed, and the fuel cotton was in good condition and left in place. This lighter will be shipped to you with no fluid. Please add Ronson or Zippo brand lighter lighter fluid and its ready to use.

The automatic push button design is elegant and effective. One push with your thumb and the top flips open exposing the wick and igniting the striker. I have tested this and it sparks well and lights every to every other time. Just fuel it up and enjoy it for another 75 years. The lighter is in very good cosmetic condition with only moderate pocketwear. The cartouche is unengraved.

Interesting removable wick and striker mechanism, see photo #5. Remove flint screw in center, and entire striker slides up and out of the lighter for easy servicing. Quite handy and unique!

Another fine vintage item from Steamcrunk.
