The station has great lithography all around; the roof states AUTO RACE and has flags of various nations on the roof, the front shows images of garages marked 1, 2 and 3 for each car, the back is lithographed with a service area with 2 race car drivers inside and showing a service guy rolling a tire towards a race car that is being fueled up! The station base measures approximately 6" x 5.5" and the box measures 6.25" x 5.5". This set was old store stock and never used!
The box has wonderful color lithography on the lid of the three cars racing down the track, has instructions on the side of the lid, and a great color image of a red racer in motion on the other sides of the lid. It still retains the original import sticker on the side of the box bottom. Being offered at no reserve! CONDITION: This toy is in near mint original unused condition with only the very lightest scratching from storage.
The lever mechanism still works great. The colors on the box and toy are still very bright and glossy.
The box is still very solid and square, but does have one split corner on the box bottom and some bottom edges. A near mint unused set! Get Images that Make Supersized Seem Small.
