This is one of a rare, hard to find series numbered from 10960 through 10975 produced in 1953 and 1954. This is an excellent example of an earlier number. There is not a speck of rust and play wear is minimal. No dents or significant wear. Color is bright and the graphics are crisp.
These tended to rust, especially around the door guides. Look closely at others before you decide. The doors and couplers slide freely. This car is as good as they come and is ready to roll or for display.
The price is full retail and I have seen them auctioned for more on other sites. This car is really a collector's piece rather than a daily runner.
