Condition: The box is a bit soiled, stained, banged-up, and tattered but still in relatively good condition. The box was also stapled on one side to keep the lid together. It has a little damage here and there but the graphics are still fresh with vivid colors. The box has very little of its original interior pieces left, but still holds the car well in place. The car itself is in great condition. It works the way it should and is all there without breaks or repairs. There is a few scratches to the surface and some spots of minor paint loss. The chrome decoration is all there and is intact with a few spots where it may be a bit loose, but it is still solidly in place. The colors are fresh and vivid and it looks like it did not get much play time. A great addition to your toy car collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
