Stock# 1131...1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Victoria 390 2-door hardtop/ "gold" plated w/factory painted undercarriage*/ plastic/ shadow box auto dealership display not for retail customers/ coaster model made by AMT*/ includes original box**/ 1:25th scale/ there is slight uneven plating spottiness/ this item was purchased at the AMT factory office where overruns and excess stock were sold and apparently special interest items not otherwise available./ this one is the best original ever seen by Autohobby/ this one is rare in original condition and should make the collectors of Fords very happy. If you have an empty shadow box, it might make you even happier to find this one. *Special Features: Ford offered Ford dealers the opportunity to acquire Ford shadowboxes which included different Ford promos that were "gold" plated. These weathered fairly quickly so very few remain in original sharp condition. These cars and trucks and shadowboxes were not made available for retail sales. These shadowbox cars were variations from regular production in three ways; 1..They were plated. 2..They do not have the year model on the front and rear bumpers. 3..They use the promo closed hood body with the AMT 3-in1 kit version chassis (considered a coaster chassis) which includes the lower side of the engine. The chassis appears to be plated also but then painted gloss black. **The box for this promo is a correct 62 Ford box. It is believed that most of these 62 "gold" Fords were factory shipped in a shadow box pre-assembled display which came in a box designed for the shadowbox. This car somehow escaped being installed into a shadow box so became an individual unit on its own. Since it did not have dates on the bumper, it was misidentified as a 63 on the 1962 box! There is no doubt in my mind that this car came in this box. The handwritten "gold" on the box indicates this. This car came from an estate auction wherein the original owner bought numerous items at the AMT factory offices and promptly put them away in new condition not to be seen until the auction of 2016. I was there and saw the new-in-the-box condition on site...$195...with FREE SHIPPING. Click on PICTURE for more views. Click on INFORMATION BUTTON below for further details.
