A grey-green model Elevating Car Hoist (garage hydraulic car ramp), made by Astra Pharos, circa ~1936.

The ramp has two bright red skids alongside a tall rectangular post with a circular vertically-aligned mechanism shell. On the back of this is a lever, and repeatedly working the lever raises the ramp.

This comparatively rare working model is one of the few products made by Astra Pharos that didn't involve either lamps (searchlights, signal lights), or guns.
