This one comes without R/C gear or Msc or ESc. This is un-driven since restoration. Its very nice & in very good/ near mint condition.Ready to put in your r/c gear of choice & off you go! Or stick it on a shelf & behold the wonder of Tamiya! Please study the pictures as these form part of the description/condition. This Vintage Tamiya Truck from the 1980's has been stripped down, cleaned, sprayed up & put back together again into what you see here. Everything on the chassis works & all any bits etc have been changed for good ones.
The bearings have all been changed for new/ unworn ones, The moving parts all have a little silicone grease on so as not to drip on a shelf, so for serious running it may need a decent oil up! The Chassis to this one is in very good/mint condition with no visible wear that i can see what so ever! The metal bevel gearset has been changed the cv boots are soft and flexible. And all the screws are bright and shiny.If you want me to send the appropriate splined servo bottom piece for your steering servo please let me know before it gets posted! Its got an alloy G7 body mount brace as well. The body to this one is in vgc/near mint condition. Its a mk1 as well, which means under all the paint its white, not like the later red ones.
No chips or breaks in or to the body tub. Make it look a bit orangey but it is definitely red the only thing to mark it down is that the original wrap around glass has a crack in it - 30mm long, it looks a bit like a scratch but i'm pretty sure its a crack (see photos), Other than that the only things to mark it down are that the original owner glued one of the light in the wrong angle but you don't notice it unless you look hard! In the photos the rear body mount holes need cutting out & the front body mount is missing, but i will do these before it gets sent! The body is finished with MCI racing decals. The windscreen wipers are included to glue on too fragile for transit!!!
The wheels and tyres to this one are vgc/used. Originals, the tyres are still soft and ply-able, no cracking & still with some pin spike left on the tread. It comes with the servo cover. I do have some R/C gear if you want it RTR.
But please check my other Tamiya items! Likewise if you want a MSC sent with it please let me know before I post it! All in all a really nice piece of 80's Tamiya history, and a must for any collection! This would look great on a shelf!
Or Alternatively with summer here, what better way to kick up some dust!! Costs-wise its a bargain, given what decent vintage variants of these go for, just about what you would pay for a re-release and somebody else has done all the hard work! - what's not to like?
