1/16 153 Aurora 1911 Buick Model 14 Roadster 'Bug' - 'American Classic' Issue

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

1974 reissue of using the original 1963 molds for Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'American Classics (in 1963 they were the 'Old Timers') in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full engine, transaxle and drive-line detail. It builds up a rolling chassis like the real car, and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. 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. With 105 parts molded in green and ivory, brass plate, clear and with rubber tires. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions.
