Very rare and from 1958. From ex-Best molds. Aurora purchased the Best molds for the Indianapolis 500 Winners and made one issue. Kit is molded in gray with real rubber tires, a driver figure, some interior detail and very nice decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are still sealed in the internal factory bag and includes decals and instructions. Bill Vukovich was the driver of the Fuel Injection Special, which roared over the 500 miles in 3 hours, 53 minutes and 10 seconds. The average speed was 128.740 mph and he lead for 195 laps. Some laps were as fast as 138 mph. This car has magnesium disc wheels, and the first eight finishers also sported the same instead of the customary wire wheels.

Aurora Convair 880 Jetliner Delta, 1/103, 383-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

$189   

Still in the factory seal - the seal has a 2 inch split on one long side. Rare 1960 Delta Airlines issue. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs.
