1/16 575-198 Aurora 1903 Rambler Old Timers
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM
1963 first issue of Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model with Plated Parts.' Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full engine, transaxle and driveline detail, full interior, complete suspension and steering linkage, exhaust and more. Molded in gloss yellow, gloss black and with brass plated parts and real rubber tires. Never started. NOTE: Missing one fender support, which is simply a bent cylinder. I have included the correct diameter of wire so you can make your own. Otherwsie inventoried with all other 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.
