The car appear to be in new condition. It was never taken out of the box. It was purchased directly from the recently closed FM Archive in Philadelphia suburb. The item was examined carefully EXTERNALLY only and no obvious flaws were noticed. There could be issues that I missed. Overall, everything looks 100% new. Some shelf wear to the styrogfoam box.
Having the original box and packing will be extremely helpful in securing the truck and accessories while it is shipped. I will bubble wrap and use a strong box to preserve the styrofoam box as well. Local pickup is welcomed.
Limited edition. Long out of production.
This is an extremely delicate model with a lot of small parts. It is commonly known that Franklin Mint items are very fragile. The buyers are usually acceptable to the notion that a small repair might have to be performed. I will pack securely in bubble wrap and double box. However, damage could occur during the shipment or especially while unpacking. You may need to reattach or glue a wire or a small part. If you are looking for a perfect 100% truck, please be aware that I can only guarantee that it will be as described when it is packed and shipped. I accept no returns.
