Aurora 1913 Mercer Raceabout - Old Timers Issue, 1/16, 572-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

1961 first issue hardbox. Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. This model features full suspension, transaxle and driveline detail, builds up a rolling chassis like the real car and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. Molded in gloss ivory, gloss black, clear, chrome plate and with real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags; the parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete with all parts including instructions. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of wooden kit sales. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Very rare. 1964 original issue of Ringo of the Fab Four. When the Beatles made it big, everyone wanted a piece of the action and Revell was no exception.

This one is never started and 100% complete, including 'near mint' condition instructions. The box has very good color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no fading, no water stains or water marks and was sold new for $1.35 at Hudson's Department Store in Detroit (from the price sticker on the short top side).

On the left there are two which are 1.5" x 3/8" each and on the right long side there is one 1" long by 1/2 inch (average). Please note that Richard Starkey (his original name) must be shipped insured.
