Advanced Molding Corp Ferrari 342 America Sports Car - (pre-Aurora), 1/32, 13

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$45   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. Very rare and for the advanced builder/collector of early plastic models. Advanced Molding issued 7 pioneering plastic car kits in 1954. But in 1955, Aurora purchased the molds then released them (the first in '55) under the Aurora name and artwork. They became famous under the Aurora name but virtually unknown under the original Advanced label because they were issued for year or less. Advanced cleverly advertised all 7 kits on each box - the box top shows the kit inside, and the long side panels show 3 on each side. The 7 were the Cunningham, MG, Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari Sportster, Corvette and Ferrari 342 America. This kit is the Ferrari Sportster, is molded in bright red with rubber tires. NOTE: this kit has the body shell assembled to 'professional' quality. Fit is perfect and the seamed are puttied and sanded. There is no other assembly and zero painting. All parts are present. With instructions that have a nice history of the car. Advanced was located at 54 West 21st Street, New York 10, NY. After selling the cars, Advanced remained in the plastic model business with the Trailblazers HO train series in 1955 centered around the famous "General." It was issued as a locomotive and tender, or just the cars as set (passenger, mail combine, baggage, box car, flat car and caboose), or the cars each separately and the rare freight set which included the locomotive and tender, box car, flat car and caboose.

Pyro 1931 Alfa Romeo Gran Turismo 6C-1750cc, 1/32, C320-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$32   

1966 Pyro issue from original molds. Ideal builder- the box is rough but the kit and instructions inside are mint. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many kit subjects based on historical significance instead of popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to, such as this Alfa, which was in the collection of John C. Silva Jr of the Silva Auto Engineering Shop in Massachusetts. Features detailed chassis, complete motor and interior and a removable hood. Molded in red and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including instructions.
