1/16 154 Aurora 1909 Stanley Steamer Model E2 Runabout - 'American Classic' Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+++
1974 issue of Aurora's 'American Classics.' Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the others in the series (originally the 'Old Timers') represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features over 80 parts, separately molded suspension, exhaust and drive shaft, detailed full interior, side mount spare and more. Molded in gloss dark green, gloss yellow, clear and with brass plated parts and real white rubber tires. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and 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 sales of wooden kits. 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.
