We know they also issued some ex-Suydam railroad kits as well.

One of the wonderful 'Pro Shop' series from 2000. The great thing about this model is that there is no painting - all parts are professionally and correctly painted - all you do is assemble it.

NOTE: the clear panel on the box is missing, so I have put the body and parts into larger bags to protect them from scratching or loss.
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Original dealership promotional model but please read carefully as it is not perfect. The model is complete and paint color and gloss are excellent with very few flaws. Chrome, tires and clear are also 'excellent.' Bright trim, fog lights, boot, sun visors and chassis plate are very neatly painted; paint quality is better than much of that from the factory. NOTE: the top windshield header was once broke but is complete and glued back on. Same with the steering wheel ring. For all these reasons it is priced well under market.
