The Oldsmobile Super 88 casting gets a last run here in the shape of the Thrushbuster car driven by Napoleon Solo and Iliya Kuryakin in the 1960s TV series. There are two versions: a deep blue and this more accurate (but quite scarce, cream).

Not at all easy to find; most being restored models, the white-cream colour being fairly easy to copy. Originals are very highly priced and my price is based on the Toymart guide.

There is no transfer on the bonnet which actually looks better in my view. Replacements are easy to find and apply, however, should you require one.

There are chips to the paintwork, mostly along the front edge og the bonnet and rear wings edges. The sides, top and bonnet are otherwise very good with a nice shine to the cream colour still. The chrome has come off the searchlights but stayed on the roof control. That works fine.

The silver painted areas are good and the base very clean, as are the windows and yellow interior. It has cast wheels and the correct, early type tyres.

A rare find!
