470 Missile Launching Platform w/ Exploding Box Car (8/OB)

Current Stock:

Product Description

 Condition:  8           Original Box:  9          Year:  1960

Up for sale is an absolutely gorgeous # 470 Missile Launching Platform with an original 6470 exploding box car. The colors on the platform and freight car are vibrant and the side lettering is crisp and clean. The rocket and satellite dishes are original postwar parts and the missile launcher has been tested but if you plan to use it, will need a replacement diaphragm in the firing mechanism (a very common issue as the original parts have dry rotted over the years). Obviously there are no nicks, chips nor damage to the platform nor the box car.

Last, but not least, the original boxes are complete, solid and have gorgeous exterior colors. The 6470 box has the front perforated panel and all interior and exterior end flaps.
