HERE I AM OFFERING A VERY, VERY RARE VINTAGE, FULLY TIN, BANDAI, BATTERY OPERATED WITH A TETHERED REMOTE CONTROL, FORMULA RACING CAR! THIS ATTACHED REMOTE CONTROL TURNS BOTH FRONT WHEELS (WITH EASE I MIGHT ADD) VIA THE STEERING WHEEL AND HAS SEPARATE BUTTONS FOR FORWARD AND REVERSE DIRECTIONS.

NOSIBWORC = NEW OLD STOCK IN BOX WITH ORIGINAL REMOTE CONTROL.

I HAVE HAD THIS STASHED AWAY WITH A FEW HUNDRED (TO THOUSANDS) OR SO ADDITIONAL MODELS ALL OF WHICH I HAVE PERSONALLY OWNED FOR UP TO 4 DECADES! THIS RARE BANDAI FORMULA LOTUS RACING TEAM NUMBER 12 CAME TO ME BY THE WAY OF MY BROTHER.

HAVING HUNDREDS TO THOUSANDS OF MODEL CARS TO CHOOSE FROM, MOSTLY PORSCHE AND CORVETTES, I HAVE DECIDED TO START LISTING SOME OF THESE HERE ON E-BAY. 95% OF THESE ARE ONE-OF-A-KINDS LISTINGS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHOW YOU AN ARRAY OF PICTURES AND DESCRIBE THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. THIS RARE TIN BANDAI IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE!
TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, THIS WAS GIVEN TO MY BROTHER BACK IN THE EARLY 70'S. HE HAD NO INTEREST IN CAR AS HE LEANED TOWARDS MOTORCYCLES AND PLANES. AS SUCH, IT WENT UNTOUCHED AND MORE IMPORTANTLY UNUSED!!

THIS LOTUS RACING FORMULA CAR IS IN SHOWCASE CONDITION AND AS SUCH YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO SEE ANY SCRATCHES OR DEFECTS. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM MY PICTURES, ALL OF THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING IS STILL WITH THIS MODEL AND HAS SERVED IT'S PURPOSE VERY ADMIRABLY! ALL OF THE DECALS ARE STILL FIRMLY ATTACHED AND NONE HAVE BLEED THROUGH. THE DRIVERS IN TACT AS IS THE WINDSHIELD AND EXHAUST.

THE TIRES ARE VERY CLEAN AND HAVE NO FLAT SPOTS OR CRACKS. THE WHEELS ARE 100% ORIGINAL AS WELL.

THE CHASSIS IS IN UNUSED CONDITION AND SHOWS NO SCRATCHES, RUST OR WEAR. IN FACT, NO RUST APPEARS ANYWHERE AS THIS IS A 100% TIN BODY AND CHASSIS BANDAI MODEL CAR.

THE REMOTE CONTROL WORKS EFFORTLESSLY AND THE STEERING IS SHARP AND RESPONSIVE WITH NO STRAINING ON THE CABLE. EVEN THE LIGHT BLUE PLASTIC PROTECTIVE SHEATH IS PERFECT WITH NO CRACKS OR RIPS ANYWHERE ON IT! YOU HAVE A VERY SMALL STAIN ON THE REAR OF THE REMOTE CONTROL AND THIS IS FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPE WHICH HELD IT IN PLACE IN THE BOX. CHANCES ARE VERY GOOD THAT THIS CAN BE REMOVED, BUT, I DO NOT ALTER ANY OF MY LISTINGS! I PLACED IT VERY CAREFULLY BACK AS IT WAS REMOVED FOR THESE PICTURES.

BY MY STANDARDS AND POLICIES, I VERY RARELY DO NOT TEST WHAT IT IS I AM OFFERING HERE ON E-BAY. AFTER ALL JUST HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO TEST A MODEL? ALL ONE NEED DO IS TO TOSS IN A FEW BATTERIES AND GIVE IT A GO! I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE SELLERS WHO WILL EVER SAY "THIS MODEL IS UNTESTED AND AS SUCH IT IS SOLD IN AS IS CONDITION" OR , "I HAVE NOT TESTED THE WIND-UP MECHANISM (CLOCK-WORK) AS I DO NOT HAVE A KEY, SO THIS WILL BE SOLD UNTESTED". THIS TIN BANDAI FORMULA CAR MODEL IS FULLY TESTED (AND WORKS PERFECTLY) AND WILL BE FULLY TESTED ONCE MORE, JUST PRIOR TO SENDING IT OFF. I DO THIS TWICE, JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIRST TESTING WAS NOT A FLUKE! I AM SURE WE BOTH DO NOT WANT ANY ISSUES HERE AND THIS IS ONE EASY STEP TO AVOID ANY!
THE MODEL WAS PLACED (IN IT'S ORIGINAL BOX) SOMEWHERE AMONGST A TOWER OF MODEL CARS AND AS SUCH, IT DID GET SOME WEAR OTHER THEN NORMAL ON IT'S BOX. YOU CAN SEE ONE OF THE CORNERS DID GET A LITTLE SCRUNCHED DUE TO THE WEIGHT OF WHAT WAS A TOP OF IT. THE CELLOPHANE WINDOW IS 97% MISSING AND AS MENTIONED EARLIER THERE ARE A FEW SMALL TEARS WHICH TAPE HAS BEEN USED ON THE INSIDE OF THE BOX TO HELP PREVENT IT TEARING ANY FURTHER. MY BROTHER DID THIS MANY YEARS AGO AND IT HAS STAYED THIS WAY TO NOW. BOTH END FLAPS ARE STILL FIRMLY ATTACHED AND HAVE GREAT COLOR.

I TAKE PRIDE IN MY MODELS THAT I OFFER HERE IN THE E-BAY WORLD. I DO HAVE OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE. I TEST EVERYTHING PRIOR TO LISTING THEM AND ONCE AGAIN PRIOR TO SENDING THEM OFF. I DO THIS SO WE WILL BOTH BE VERY HAPPY WITH THE END RESULT, IT'S THE ONLY WAY I DO THINGS!

ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THESE PICTURES AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR DESIRE ADDITIONAL PICTURES, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME VIA E-BAY MESSAGING AND SUPPLY ME WITH YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS AND I WILL DO THE REST!

THIS VINTAGE, BATTERY OPERATED BANDAI FORMULA CAR, IS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AND A TIME THAT HAVE PASSED US BY.

THIS IS A NEW STORE FOR ME HERE ON E-BAY, BUT, I COME WITH A WELL OILED AND POLISHED TRACK RECORD! I AM CURRENTLY (NOT ON THIS ACCOUNT ... YET!!) A GOLD /RATED POWER~SELLER WITH OVER 4 YEARS OF THIS STATUS BACKING ME. I SPECIALIZE IN PRIMARILY THE AUTOMOTIVE FIELD AND I CONCENTRATE WITH/ON PORSCHE, BENTLEY, AUDI AND "PORSCHE DESIGN" ITEMS/ACCESSORIES.

ALL OF MY DOMESTIC SHIPMENTS WILL BE INSURED FOR THE SELLING PRICE. I ENTER THE SHIPPING DATA DAILY INTO BOTH E-BAY AND PAYPAL. THIS BANDAI FORMULA RACING CAR WILL BE SENT VIA UPS AND WILL BE FULLY INSURED.

FOR MY INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS, THIS WILL BE SENT VIA THE USPS INTERNATIONAL "EMS" AIR MAIL. THIS METHOD IS REQUIRED BY BOTH E-BAY AND PAYPAL, AS PROOF OF DELIVERY IS REQUIRED. UTILIZING THIS METHOD TO OBTAIN ONES SIGNATURE IS THE MOST ECONOMICAL ROUTE TO GO...... ACCORDINGLY, A SIGNATURE WILL BE REQUIRED AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY.PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL HAVE TO INSURE THIS PARCEL FOR ITS SELLING PRICE. AS SUCH, IT MUST BE DECLARED FOR ITS SELLING VALUE. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TAXES, DUTIES OR ASSESSMENTS WHICH MIGHT BE LEVIED OR ACCESSED FROM ANY FOREIGN GOVERNMENT. SO PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR THIS ON YOUR END!

IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM WITH THIS, I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU PASS ON THIS AS I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL BUYER WHO DOES NOT TAKE THE TIME TO READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS, BUT, YET TAKES THE TIME TO LEAVE BADLY PLACED FEEDBACK DUE TO THEIR IGNORANCE!

AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THIS IS A NEW AREA FOR ME (HERE ON E-BAY) AND I DO TRY MY BEST TO DO AS GOOD AS I CAN. THIS HAS BECOME A FULL TIME BUSINESS FOR ME AND I REALLY ENJOY DOING IT. I WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO TILL IT BECOMES A BURDEN AND I CAN NO LONGER ENJOY IT. I WILL BE ADDING TO THIS STORE WEEKLY (OR TRYING TO) AND HOPEFULLY YOU WILL SEE THAT I DO EXACTLY WHAT I SAY AND DO SO IN A VERY TIMELY FASHION.

THIS WILL BE OFFERED IN THE BUY-IT-NOW FORMAT AND THIS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND OFFERING BY ME.
IT IS MY INTENTION TO LIST ONE OR TWO DIFFERENT MODELS EACH AND EVERY DAY (IF AT ALL POSSIBLE), OR UNTIL SUCH A TIME WHEN I GET BURNT OUT FROM DOING SO. IT MIGHT BEHOOVE YOU TO CHECK IN WITH ME OFTEN AS YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHEN AND IF I WILL OFFER THAT SPECIAL SOMETHING THAT WILL ROUND OUT OR COMPLETE YOUR COLLECTION!





THIS IS WHERE I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IN READING ALL OF THE ABOVE.

I HAVE JUST ADDED THE "STORE" FEATURE THAT E-BAY OFFERS WE SELLERS TO USE (AT A FEE OF COURSE) AND THIS IS TO ASSIST YOU, THE BUYER, TO VIEW ALL OF MY OFFERINGS. IN ORDER TO VIEW MY LISTINGS IN A CONCISE AND ORDERLY FASHION, ALL YOU NEED DO IS TO LOCATE THAT SMALL "RED" DOOR A TOP THIS PAGE. THIS IS LOCATED JUST BELOW MY SELLERS ID AND FEEDBACK TALLY. ONCE LOCATED, A SINGLE LEFT CLICK ON IT WILL IN TURN "OPEN" THE VIRTUAL DOOR TO MY STORE HERE ON E-BAY!

IN ORDER TO STREAMLINE YOUR SEARCH FURTHER, ONCE YOUR IN MY STORE, TO THE LEFT YOU WILL SEE A "SEARCH" BAR, IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE JUST MY MODEL CARS, JUST TYPE IN "MODEL CAR" AND JUST MY LISTED MODEL CARS WILL POP-UP. ... IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE SOME LP'S ... YOU GOT IT ... TYPE IN "ALBUMS" . I THINK YOU GET THE JIST OF THIS NOW!

I HAVE A LIST OF CATEGORIES THAT WILL ASSIST YOU IN STREAMLINING YOUR SEARCH AS WELL. I HAVE JUST ADDED A NEWER CATEGORY "ANTIQUE/VINTAGE TOYS" TO HELP KEEP SOME OF THESE MODELS SEPARATE FROM MY OTHER LISTINGS HERE.

ONCE AGAIN, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATIONS ON THIS NOS (NEW OLD STOCK) BATTERY OPERATED, TETHERED REMOTE CONTROL FORMULA RACING CAR BY BANDAI (WITH THE ORIGINAL AND PICTURED BOX) AND FOR ANY OTHER CONSIDERATIONS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE GIVEN ME IN THE PAST......
