Description* :
This is a very rare find. A 1959 ford retractable top galaxie starliner with working top! It has only minor assembly, some of which can be undone (not glued). The engine block is assembled, but none of the other engine parts (typical of models purchased by newbies - do the first step of the instructions and then quit because the glue didn't dry fast enough?) It is molded in a nice coral color if you don't like to paint (except that the included figures will look sunburned). I am still looking for the instructions. The only thing i noticed missing without having them to go by is the left arm of the driver figure. He can get his arm around his squeeze, but can't drive at the same time. It has the era correct wide wsw tires and lots of chrome. The moving top can be displayed in an infinite number of positions. The hood opens to display the correct y-block v8 engine. It is from the skip's fiesta drive-in series revell did in the late 90's. This is a 1988 kit, so over 30 years old. The box is pretty crushed, but holds the parts and is good to follow for assembly, if that is your plan. The decals are included. This is not a 3 in 1 kit, so they are the only "customization". I bought this after i purchased my thunderbird convertible and got on a ford trip. My top disappears into the trunk like the model, but hasn't worked correctly since i got it. There were similar problems with the star liner, and thus it's demise after only a three year run ('57-'59). It will be shipped via insured priority mail for 2-3 day quick, cheap and save delivery. If you are in europe and opt for the cheaper first class postage, be ready for a potential long delay as they are taking 3-4 weeks in some cases, while most to the uk and canada are around 10. They are getting out of the us in 4-5 days and the rest is for who knows what. Thanks of looking at this one and my other vintage kits. I will combine shipping if you let me know in advance after winning your first one.
