I got this new in Dec. 1966 at the Farmers Market toy store in Los Angeles.
I was very careful with it. Took the batteries out of it and put it away a few weeks later.
It worked when last used but that was 50 years ago. It did forward-reverse , left and right turns. I think the fan may have turned in the rear but I forgot. This is a 1 owner.
Kept in a dry dark climate so the color is pretty nice. This has not been banged around and is complete. I do not want this back.
Make sure that you really want this. I never let any other kids play way this.I was careful about that. I liked it back then and wanted to keep it minty so I never showed it to anyone.
You will not likely find another one of these as well kept from the original owner. Just think when I bought this LBJ was President. Hope you like the last photo of when this same toy was new. On my tenth birthday I got up at 5AM.
I baked my own birthday cake, Put icing on it and ate the whole thing before school started. How is that for greatness.
