All of the factory blue cardboard display material is still present inside. The kit has been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: this kit has minor assembly- Step 1 and 2 are done. The frame rails and cross members are assembled (5 parts) and the radiator & shell are assembled (5 parts) and it is glued to the frame. There is no other assembly. Assembly quality ranges from 'very good' to 'good-.' It is completely workable, but was done by a younger child. Please note there is some visible cement (four areas, mainly fingerprints) , but it is very accessible so it can be easily sanded and polished with Novus plastic polish. One cross member, #113, is 3/16 out of place on one side. You will need to cut the one side out and glue it in properly.
