The Oldsmobile Super 88 Gun-Firing Man From UNCLE Thrushbuster car has a rich, deep purple-blue paint finish, shiny chrome parts including the roof button, and a complete, fresh and clean original paper label on the bonnet. Cast wheels.
Model functions perfectly.
The original Waverley Ring is included too.
Couple of very small marks to the paint head-on, and that’s about it.
The colourful card plinth is complete and bright with a little minor ruffling at wheel slots. Couple of very small wheel slot tears. Version with a monochrome central panel over which the car is placed.
Plenty of information on plinth reverse.
The outer box too is clean, brightly-coloured and complete. Some age/handling wear and a couple of small, discreet end flap seam repairs.
Both inner packing rings which fit over the top of the roof button are included.
