A very sought-after early issue – this Kojak’s Buick is a vivid metallic bronze with 4-spoke wheels. The figure of Kojak is without a hat and also in evening dress. Note too that Crocker (in the car) is wearing a dark blue jacket (unlike the standard issue).
This set comes complete with the unapplied self-adhesive badge and the detachable roof light.
The card backdrop and card inner are complete, crisp and bright. Note this is the version that has an all-card inner ( i.e. not card and polystyrene). A little wear to the section where Kojak slots in.
The outer box is complete and bright with vivid graphics. Intact original cellophane.
No graffiti.The usual crease at box is visible on the reverse where header joins the main body of the box. A little wear.
