Jo-Han 1965 AMC Marlin Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

Very rare and especially in this condition. Original friction-drive promotional model in a stunning Metallic Marina Aqua and Metallic Atlantis Aqua two tone scheme. One-owner model was obtained new in 1965 in Lexington, KY by a very discriminating adult collector. The box is original and stamped with "MARLIN by Rambler Met Marina Aqua Met Atlantis Aqua". The model has perfect color and gloss. Tires are perfect (never rolled) and it has never even been displayed. The chrome is in factory new condition; even the hood ornament is present. I would grade this model a 9.9 out of 10, with 10 being flawless. The only thing holding back the '10' is that I hesitate to call anything flawless.

Full size plans are included with highly detailed text instructions also. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts including decals and instructions. Sterling was a famous manufacturer dating back to the 1930/40s flying model craze. Although they continued to produce kits for decades after the flying model slump following World War II, they eventually fell victim to the general lack of interest in modeling that occurred in the early 1980s. I always considered Sterling kits to be deluxe kits as they had the action features and were much nicer than most other kits of this type.

Jo-Han 1962 AMC Rambler American Custom Convertible Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Very rare; normally you only see the coupe version and not the convertible. This one is in amazing condition also. It is a one-owner model was obtained new on January 2, 1963 in Lexington KY at Welgo Department Store for 98 cents. The model has never even been displayed. The Coral and Bronze paint has factory new color and gloss. There is no warping of the body or other parts. The chrome is intact. The front bumper is 'excellent' and the rear is 'very good' because it has some of the typical 'crinkle' defect. A Pillar and vent frames are mint, as well as the clear. I would grade this one a 9 out of 10, with the rear bumper being responsible for the deduction. It would be hard to find a better all-original example with the correct box.
