AMT 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Promo With Original Box, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare and in amazing, factory-new condition. This is an all original, one owner promotional model obtained on October 30, 1965 in Lexington KY by a very discriminating collector. It is still wrapped in the original factory tissue. The box is stamped 'Corvette HT Rally Red Black Int" on the side, which matches this model perfectly. The car is simply stunning - a good 9.5 out of 10 with a 10 being perfect. Color and gloss are fantastic, chrome is like new as well as all tires, parts and clear. Light cleaning is the only improvement that could be done to make it as close as they came to flawless from the factory. This model must be shipped insured.

AMT 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Promo With Original Box And Tissue Paper, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very, very rare promotional model, especially in this condition and with the original box. The box is stamped "CORVETTE CONV. 1736 SILVER PEARL." This is a one-owner model that was obtained new on November 5, 1965 in Lexington KY. It has never been displayed and has been stored in the original box and tissue since it left the factory. It is 100% complete and original with zero repairs or touch-ups. The paint and chrome are in factory-new condition. There is zero body warp and the clear is in 'mint' condition. I would grade this one 9.5 out of 10 with 10 flawless. The deduction is because there is a closed split (fits back perfectly) at the drivers side vent frame and the A pillar. Nothing is broken off, and the crack closes perfectly (it is invisible), so this is completely repairable; but I'll leave that to the new owner. Even includes the original factory packing paper. The box is complete with all flaps and solid but has wear as shown and age foxing.

AMT 1968 Ford Thunderbird Coupe Promo With Original Box, 1/25, 9228-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Very rare friction motor promotional in superb condition and includes the original box. This model was obtained in 1968 by a discriminating adult collector in Lexington KY. The promo has never even been displayed - it has been in the box since it left the factory. The color and gloss are factory new. The chrome is 'near mint.' There is no body warp and the clear is in 'near mint' condition. I would grade this one 9 out of 10 with 10 being flawless. The deduction is for very light box roof scuffs. The original box is complete and 'very good+' with general age wear.
