The car is clean as new and in near mint original condition with all parts intact. It has a strong friction motor with clicker motor sound as well.
As an added bonus the beautifully illustrated factory box is included. Representing a Watson front engine Indy roadster, Linemar calls the car a Speedway Racer Indianapolis Style. Many toy race cars are rather generic looking, but this magnificent car looks very realistic with it's offset driver compartment and separate Offy 4 cylinder exhaust running the length of the car. The toy has never been played with or out on display.
Bright red paint finish has a beautiful high luster with no dents, dings or scratches. Polished windscreen and exhaust look outstanding.
Highly detailed plastic driver's head with goggles and and helmet is pristine and still firmly attached. Nicely treaded rubber tires are all flawless with no cracks or flat spots. Awesome sponsor logos look magnificent and includes the venerable Mobil Pegasus flying horse.
Friction motor runs like new; long, strong and smooth with loud clicker engine sound. Original view style box has beautiful color graphics showing cars speeding along a race track with grandstand in background and flag man waving a checkered flag. Box is crisp and clean with no stains or fading. Flaps are all intact and like new. An original Kresge price sticker is still affixed to one box end.
