1/24 Product Miniature Company 1953 Chevrolet Corvette - Rare Promo in Kit Form With Paints and Brush
Metal and Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
Very rare. Product Miniature Company of Milwaukee, WI issued the 'Tru Miniatures' New (1953) Chevrolet Corvette as a friction-powered promotional model for Chevrolet dealers and in kit form in a display box. The kit form is the rarest of the two. This example is in untouched condition. When you lift the lid, the cardboard presentation material is intact. The metal chassis and friction motor is on the right, the acetate body in the middle held in place by the paint brush, the correct two glass bottles of silver and red paint are at the upper left, the small parts and decals are still in the factory envelope and below that are the four rubber tires with the wheels in their slots. Detailed assembly and painting instructions are on the back. The acetate body is very straight with almost none of the typical warping. The box is complete but has wear as shown, mainly on the sides. This kit must be shipped insured.
