It has a strong friction motor as well. The original jet black finish on this car is mirror smooth with a wonderful deep wet look luster. There are no dents or dings. A bit of older touch up can be seen, mostly to left rear roof area. Chrome trim all shines brilliantly with just some minor age tarnish showing in spots. Red finish on tail lights show some wear. The car is a highly detailed and very realistic toy with intricate authentic hood and trunk emblems.

Glossy black basehas just minor age wear.Spiral geared friction motor runs like new; long, strong, and smooth. Realistic rubber tires are allpristine with no cracks or flat spots.Left rear drive tire has just a bit of wear on tread. The others are all flawless. Front wheels are fully steerable in any direction. Correct sombrero style hubcaps with original red center dots look simply awesome. Whitewalls all look superb but right rear has a bit ofolder touch up.Please remember, I super size all my photos which may greatly emphasize any minor flaw. This is to make sure all buyers are aware of any issue, but do not be mislead, the car looks absolutely outstanding in person I can assure you.
