Condition Notes 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: this deep blue and a more accurate (but quite scarce, cream). This is the blue one in superb condition. It really doesn't look as if it has been out of the box, although quite where the box is I do not know. This is worth getting and acquiring a good repro box for with the ring too as it is totally original, with a nice undamaged, apart from a little ageing, bonnet transfer. The chrome lights and roof element are all good and work and the two men still have their guns and hair (often missing now!). The wheels are very clean and correct tyres all excellent. the base is virtually unmarked. All, in all, if you are looking for one of these then buy this as you'll find it hard to find a better one. The only faults I can see are small chips on the bonnet leading edge and front bumper edge. I have two almost identical condition cars in stock at present.
