  • This truck takes accessories to a new level! It is a transport truck carrying a friction-powered race car.
  • Car can be removed and played with separately. This is also the first truck to display the year on its license plate.
  • Truck was made in both Hong Kong and in China.
  • This is the China version.
  • Battery compartment is clean and all the lights are in working order.
  • Box is also mint with bright graphics and complete with both top & bottom insert.
  • This variation is known as the “Gold Grill” and made in China.
  • During the late 1980s, it seems they had some problems with the process and some of the trucks came out with a gold tone to them.
  • This was quickly caught and corrected and only a few of these were distributed making them very hard to find.
  • The box features the truck parked next to a Hess Gas Station with Christmas trees and mountains in the background.
  • Bottom of the box contains battery installation instructions and race car operation instructions.
  • Truck measures approximately 12″ in length.
