I have examined the car and I know it is a beautiful blue all original version except the battery cover which I had professionally replaced. The car has very nice color and detail. The lower body behind the front wheels has some minor professional touch up. The windshield shows some flaking of the chrome coating. This just accents the originality of the toy.
This is a truly scarce/rare Collectable battery operated race car from the 1950s. Check out the action and ask any questions prior to the last day of the sale. The collector value on these great race cars will keep going up.So true when you have a beautiful one like this. The toy is 10 (25cm) in length. Please zoom in and check out the quality of this beauty.
