Pop Up Cable Car Postcard
Send your very own model of a Wellington icon home with this Pop Up Cable Car postcard.

Grip Car 1 was the Cable Car that climbed Wellington’s hills from 1902 until it was replaced by the current Cable Car in 1978. This model recalls this most well-known and beloved Grip Car of all. Perched on the outside (something that wouldn’t be allowed these days) passengers got an exciting ride up 120 metres through two 100 metre long tunnels and over two bridges. These days it can be found inside the Cable Car Museum where you can still enjoy climbing up and sitting on its wooden seats.
Learn a little bit of history about Grip Car 1, while having some fun building your very own model. This Pop Up Cable Car postcard is the perfect souvenir of your visit to Wellington. Or the perfect gift to send to any Wellingtonian living abroad.
Exclusive to Museums Wellington, this pop up postcard is part of our custom range aimed at celebrating the iconic Wellington Cable Car.
This model is also available for purchase in store at the Cable Car Museum and Wellington Museum.
