Ideal 1955 Desoto Fireflite 4 Door Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$42   

Original dealer promotional model in 'good' condition. There is very little body warping which is rare. The original friction drive is intact. Green and white color is original and nice other than general wear and some light age foxing. The clear is 'very good' but can use cleaning. The tires are almost like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that the chassis has been painted black and some of the fine trim (door handles, trim, etc) has been correctly and very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.

SMP 1959 Imperial Convertible Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$29   

Original dealer promotional model that is 100% complete. This is a one-owner model that has always been adult owned. The tires are factory new - it has never been played with and never exposed to smoke. It has the metal chassis factory-painted black and stamped "S.M.P. Mt Clemons Mich"; the friction motor still works. The body is good but has some warping as shown. Body color is glossy and pretty with some foxing. The front and rear bumpers are stamped metal. Some of the fine trim (door handles etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint.

Cruver 1949 Oldsmobile 98 Futuramic 4 Door Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$149   

Very rare and even more so in this condition. Very early original dealer promotional model. It is 100% complete with all four door handles, trim and hood and trunk ornaments. This model came from a collector who began saving these in the late 1940s; it has always been adult owned. It has the black chassis with the following raised tex "Manufactured By Cruver Mfg Co Chicago" The tires look factory new. The whitewalls are excellent, which is rare - they were normally a weak point and would often crack and peel. The body is amazing 'near mint' condition; I cannot find any warping. The body color and beautiful and gloss as new. The thin clear windows are 'very good++' on the front and back, but the sides have some wrinkling as shown. Some of the fine trim (door handles, etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint.

AMT 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Friction Drive Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$36   

Original dealer promotional model in nice condition. It is 100% complete and has the original metal black-painted chassis with a working friction motor. This is a one-owner model that has always been adult owned. The tires are factory new - it has never been played with and never exposed to smoke. The body is excellent and is almost warp-free; the warping is mild at the rocker panels (they are still flexible and push in easily). The paint is in nice condition (with light foxing) as is the chrome. Clear is very nice. Some of the fine trim (door handles etc) has been painted to 'professional' quality; it is good enough to pass for factory paint.

AMT 1952 Studebaker Commander Coupe Key-Wind Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$38   

Original dealer promotional model. AMT went to a good deal of effort on this model. It features a all-metal chassis with a keywind motor, metal axles and gear, metal front bumper & metal rear bumper and clear in all 9 windows. Plastic color is a stunning midnight blue that still has excellent gloss. The body is very good and only has slight warping compared to most. Clear is very nice but can use cleaning. The tires are like new - if it was played with, it was not for long. No parts are missing and it is original except that some of the fine trim (door handles, etc) has been very neatly adult painted. The quality is good enough to pass for factory paint.

Jo-Han 1960 Plymouth Station Wagon Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$36   

Rare friction-drive promotional model. This is an one-adult owned model and has never been played with. It has been stored in a box and never seen light or smoke- the plastic is glossy and clean as new. The body is amazing condition for this type of plastic. The factory silver paint on the top and the green interior paint is mint with zero wear. The body has very little warping. Oddly, it is the interior which is warped but that is the easiest part to fix. The clear has the typical aging; however, I have a new Jo-Han 1960 Plymouth windshield that I am including with this promo - it is a straight-forward replacement. The whitewalls are exceptional, and there is no wear at all on the tires. Strangely, there is a zone of copper spraypaint on the center of the underside. That is the only unusual thing. She is certainly not perfect, with the new windshield installed she will be about as nice as you can get for an all-original, rare promo.

AMT 1954 Pontiac 2 Door Hardtop Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$32   

Original dealer promotional model. Like all originals, it has a natural aluminum metal chassis with no markings and metal front & rear bumpers and hood and trunk bright trim as well. The body has very good color and gloss and shown. This is a celluloid plastic body, but it is surprisingly straight; there is some warping, but it is better than 90% of the survivors. I have seen this model mint in the box with no windshield and with windshields; this one does not have one. The silver trim has been painted to 'excellent++' quality by the previous owner. This was a friction motor car but the previous owner removed the friction motor (but kept the original chassis, axles and even the drive gear). The box is not original.

SMP 1959 Chevrolet Impala 4 Door Sedan Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$24   

Rare four door sedan. Original dealer promotional model; not a reissue. It has a metal chassis and is all original on the underside except the friction motor has been removed. I listed this as SMP, but it may have been AMT. The strongpoint of this model is the body, body parts, chassis and tires. These bodies were all celluloid plastic; this one does have some warping and is better than 90% of the survivors. The tires show no wear, the whitewalls are almost perfect and the bumpers are great except some slight chrome loss on the front one. The clear is missing. The fine trim and white cove have been correctly painted to 'excellent' quality by the previous owner. The box is not original. NOTE: I would only recommend this promo for restoration if you can find a donor windshield.

AMT 1957 Ford Thunderbird Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$28   

Original dealer promotional model from 1956 for the '57 year. Like all originals, it has a black painted, metal chassis that is stamped "AMT INC Birmingham Mich." The body has very good color and gloss and shown. Clear windshield is excellent. This is a celluloid plastic body, but amazingly there is only minimal warping. The silver trim has been painted to 'professional' quality by the previous owner. It looks better than most factory painted trim on other promos. This was a friction motor car but the previous owner removed the friction motor (but kept the original chassis, axles and even the drive gear). The box is not original.

AMT 1956 Buick Century Convertible Promo Friction Drive Motorized, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit

$39   

Original dealer promotional model. And AMT went to a good deal of effort on this model! It features a all-metal chassis, friction motor (which works), metal axles and gear, metal rear bumper, front bumper and grille, metal portholes and two tone interior. Clean windshield is excellent. The body has good color and gloss. This is a celluloid plastic body, so there is some warping, but less than what 90% of the survivors have. It is still very displayable. The boot and steering wheel rim have been very neatly painted by the previous owner. If any of the other silver trim is not factory painted, it sure is neat enough to pass for it!

Jo-Han 1962 Plymouth Convertible Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$62   

Very rare. Original friction-drive promotional model in a stunning green and dark green with a green chassis (four screws) and metal axles. One-owner model was obtained new on January 2, 1963 in Lexington, KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The box is original and stamped with "PLYMOUTH Friction Conv. Green 6 3362 Dk Met Green". The model has perfect color and gloss and very minor warping. Tires are perfect (never rolled) and it has never even been displayed. The chrome is generally 'very good' but the rear bumper has some of the typical 'crinkle' defect. The driver's side vent frame is not broken but 'buckled' as shown. It displays as 8 out of 10 (with 10 being perfect) with the back bumper chrome and vent frame responsible for the deduction.
