ALPS VINTAGE, FULLY WORKING, TIN, CHAPARRAL 2F BATTERY OPERATED RACE CAR WithBOX

I HAVE HAD THIS STASHED AWAY WITH A FEW HUNDRED OR SO ADDITIONAL MODELS ALL OF WHICH I HAVE PERSONALLY OWNED FOR UP TO 5 DECADES! THIS RARE ALPS, 100% FULLY FUNCTIONING.

IT HAS BEEN IN DRY STORAGE EVER SINCE COMING HOME WITH ME! HE HAD THIS IN A GLASS CASE ON DISPLAY IN HIS "MAN-CAVE" WITH THE BOX PLACED NEXT TO IT. FORTUNATELY, HE HAD TWO (2) OF THESE... HAVING HUNDREDS TO THOUSANDS OF MODEL CARS TO CHOOSE FROM, MOSTLY PORSCHE AND CORVETTES, I HAVE DECIDED TO START LISTING SOME OF THESE HERE ON E-BAY. 95% OF THESE ARE ONE-OF-A-KIND LISTINGS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHOW YOU AN ARRAY OF PICTURES AND DESCRIBE THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. THIS RARE ALPS IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE! IS A VERY RARE MODEL. THE BODY ON THIS CHAPARRAL IS IN GOOD TO VERY GOOD CONDITION. UPON CLOSE INSPECTION, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HAT THIS MODEL HAS BEEN PLAYED WITH, BUT AS I STATED ABOVE, IT HAS NEVER BEEN ABUSED.

THE TIN BODY HAS NO RUST, SCRATCHES, DIMPLES OR ANY SIGNS OF USAGE WHAT-SO-EVER. THE CARS GLASS (REALLY PLASTIC) IS PERFECT TO INCLUDE THE HEADLIGHTS AND THE DUAL COLORED REAR DECK LID. THIS CAR DOES HAVE THE FACTORY DECALS AND THESE ARE STILL WELL ATTACHED TO THE BODY. THE REAR SPOILER IS 100% ORIGINAL AND IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER. BEING A USED VINTAGE MODEL, ONE SHOULD EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO SEE SIGNS OF USAGE AND YOU DO.

NOT AS BAD AS ONE WOULD THINK FOR IT'S AGE, BUT YOU DO HAVE SOME VISIBLE SCRATCHES HERE AND THERE. I DID JUST LOCATE A SMALL DIMPLE ON THE ROOF, I DO NOT KNOW IF MY PICTURES SHOW THIS. THE PAINT IS STILL VERY SHINY AND HOLDS A BRIGHT GLEAM WHEN LIGHT HITS IT. THE WHEELS ARE A HARD RUBBER AND HAVE NO FLAT SPOTS, CRACKS OR DRY-ROT ON ANY OF THEM. THE HUB CAPS ARE ALL ORIGINAL AND THESE ARE POLISHED CHROME AND HOLD A NICE SHINE TO THEM AS WELL. THE INTERIOR IS IN SHOWCASE CONDITION/SHAPE AND IS ALSO MADE FROM PRESSED METAL. ALL OF THE COLORS AND PATTERNS ARE DONE SO VIA TIN LITHOGRAPHY.

THE STEERING WHEEL IS PLASTIC AS IS THE DRIVER AND BOTH ARE ORIGINAL TO THIS MODEL. THE CHASSIS IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION AND HERE IS WHERE YOU DO LOCATE SOME SIGNS OF SLIGHT USAGE.

YOU HAVE SOME LIGHT SCRATCHES ON THIS CHASSIS AND IT IS MADE ENTIRELY OUT OF PLASTIC. YOU HAVE NO CRACKS OR CHIPS.

THE BATTERY COMPARTMENTS DOOR IS ALSO PLASTIC AND STILL FACTORY ATTACHED. THE LOCKING TAB WORKS AS DESIGNED EASILY SLIDES BACK AND FORTH. THE "ON/OFF" SWITCH IS ALSO LOCATED HERE ON THE REAR OF THE CHASSIS. TAKES TWO (2) SIZE "D" BATTERIES (NOT INCLUDED) AND ALSO MAKES A REAL MOTOR SOUND WHEN POWERED UP. YOU NEED TO PLACE THE BATTERIES INTO THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT AS SHOWN, LOCK IT DOWN AND SWITCH IT "ON".

YOU THEN PLACE THIS ON ANY LEVEL, HARD SURFACE BEING SOMEWHAT MINDFUL OF CARPET, AS NONE OF THESE VINTAGE MODELS WERE DESIGNED TO OPERATE ON CARPET. ONCE PLACED DOWN, THE CAR THE CAR WILL BEGIN TO ROLL FORWARD SLOWLY WHILE THE REAR SPOILER STARTS TO LIFT, IT WILL THEN STOP WHILE CONTINUING TO RAISE IT'S REAR SPOILER. ALL THE TIME, WHILE THIS.

CHAPARRAL 2F IS POWERED ON, THE REAR DECK LIGHTS WILL GIVE YOU THE IMAGE OF THEM "FLASHING" WHEN IN ACTUALITY, THE SMALL LIGHT BULB ACTUALLY ROTATES AROUND A FULL 360 DEGREES GOING BETWEEN THE DUAL COLORS OF THE REAR DECK LID. NEXT THE CAR WILL START TO TAKE OFF AND GAIN SPEED. AT THIS TIME THE REAR SPOILER STARTS TO COME BACK DOWN INTO IT'S ORIGINAL LOW PROFILE POSITION. THEN THE CAR WILL START TO SLOW DOWN AND THEN STOP. HERE AGAIN, THE REAR SPOILER WILL START TO RAISE AGAIN AND START THE CYCLE ALL OVER ONCE AGAIN. YOU CAN MANUALLY ADJUST THE FRONT WHEELS SO THE CAR WILL DRIVE IN SMALL TO LARGER CIRCLES. OBVIOUSLY, THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE PRIOR TO PLACING THE CAR ONTO THE GROUND. THE BOX IS 100% COMPLETE AND ORIGINAL. YOU DO HAVE A LITTLE SHELF WEAR AS THIS SHOULD BE EXPECTED FROM AN ITEM THAT IS NOT BEING REPRESENTED AS TRUE NOS (NEW OLD STOCK). YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL EIGHT (8) STAPLES HOLDING BOTH THE LID AND BASE TOGETHER. THE GRAPHICS ARE SHARP AND CLEAN. THE ORIGINAL INSERT HAS PROTECTED THE CAR VERY WELL AND HAS KEPT THE TIRES TRUE AND ROUND.

ONE SIDE OF THIS BOX HAS SOME ADDED TAPEOF TWO (2) KINDS TO INCLUDE MASKING TAPE. YOU ALSO HAVE SOME WATER DAMAGE AS THIS BOX WAS ONCE INVOLVED IN MY FAMILIES EPIC WATER GUN SHOW-DOWN, IN WHICH ALL OF MY SIBLINGS TEAMED UP AGAINST ME AS CAME AT ME FROM ALL SIDES WITH THEIR SUPER SOAKER STYLE GUNS. THIS BOX AND MANY OTHERS BECAME MY SALVATION AS I USED THEM TO CONSTRUCT A WALL BETWEEN MY ATTACKERS AND MYSELF. MY MOM FINALLY HEARD ALL OF THE SCREAMING AND JUMPING AROUND AND CAME TO MY RESCUE! NO INSTRUCTIONS WERE GIVEN TO ME WITH THIS CAR , SO PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT ANY.

AFTER ALL JUST HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO TEST A MODEL? ALL ONE NEED DO IS TO TOSS IN A FEW BATTERIES AND GIVE IT A GO! MODEL IS FULLY TESTED (AND WORKS PERFECTLY) AND WILL BE FULLY TESTED ONCE MORE, JUST PRIOR TO SENDING IT OFF.

I DO THIS TWICE, JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIRST TESTING WAS NOT A FLUKE! I TAKE PRIDE IN MY MODELS THAT I OFFER HERE IN THE E-BAY WORLD. I DO HAVE OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE.

AS I MENTIONED ABOVE, I TEST EVERYTHING PRIOR TO LISTING IT AND ONCE AGAIN PRIOR TO SENDING THEM OFF. I DO THIS SO WE WILL BOTH BE VERY HAPPY WITH THE END RESULT, IT'S THE ONLY WAY I DO THINGS! ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THESE PICTURES AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR DESIRE ADDITIONAL PICTURES, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME VIA E-BAY MESSAGING AND I WILL DO THE REST!

IS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AND A TIME THAT HAVE PASSED US BY. THIS IS A RELATIVELY NEW STORE FOR ME HERE ON E-BAY, BUT, I COME WITH A WELL OILED AND POLISHED TRACK RECORD! A GOLD /RATED PSELLER WITH OVER 8 YEARS OF THIS STATUS BACKING ME. I SPECIALIZE IN PRIMARILY THE AUTOMOTIVE FIELD AND I CONCENTRATE WITH/ON PORSCHE, BENTLEY, AUDI AND. I HAVE A UPS ACCOUNT AND MOST OF MY OFFERINGS HERE SHALL BE SENT THAT WAY.

I PACK EACH AND EVERY ITEM MYSELF AND DO SO AS IF I WERE RECEIVING IT. UNFORTUNATELY, IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD SOME RUN-IN'S WITH SOME SCRUPULOUS FOLKS WHO BY THEIR VERY NATURE "DO NOT PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS". SO PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR THIS ON YOUR END! AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THIS IS A NEW AREA FOR ME (HERE ON E-BAY) AND I DO TRY MY BEST TO DO AS GOOD AS I CAN. THIS HAS BECOME A FULL TIME BUSINESS FOR ME AND I REALLY ENJOY DOING IT. I WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO TILL IT BECOMES A BURDEN AND I CAN NO LONGER ENJOY IT. I WILL BE ADDING TO THIS STORE WEEKLY (OR TRYING TO) AND HOPEFULLY YOU WILL SEE THAT I DO EXACTLY WHAT I SAY AND DO SO IN A VERY TIMELY FASHION.

IT IS MY INTENTION TO LIST ONE OR TWO DIFFERENT MODELS EACH AND EVERY DAY (IF AT ALL POSSIBLE), OR UNTIL SUCH A TIME WHEN I GET BURNT OUT FROM DOING SO. IT MIGHT BEHOOVE YOU TO CHECK IN WITH ME OFTEN AS YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHEN AND IF I WILL OFFER THAT SPECIAL SOMETHING THAT WILL ROUND OUT OR COMPLETE YOUR COLLECTION!

THIS IS WHERE I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IN READING ALL OF THE ABOVE. IN ORDER TO VIEW MY LISTINGS IN A CONCISE AND ORDERLY FASHION, ALL YOU NEED DO IS TO LOCATE THAT SMALL. DOOR A TOP THIS PAGE.

THIS IS LOCATED JUST BELOW MY SELLERS ID AND FEEDBACK TALLY. THE VIRTUAL DOOR TO MY STORE HERE ON E-BAY! IN ORDER TO STREAMLINE YOUR SEARCH FURTHER, ONCE YOUR IN MY STORE, TO THE LEFT YOU WILL SEE A "SEARCH" BAR, IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE JUST MY MODEL CARS, JUST TYPE IN "MODEL CAR" AND JUST MY LISTED MODEL CARS WILL POP-UP. IF YOU'D LIKE TO SEE SOME LP'S... I THINK YOU GET THE JIST OF THIS NOW!

I HAVE A LIST OF CATEGORIES THAT WILL ASSIST YOU IN STREAMLINING YOUR SEARCH AS WELL. I HAVE JUST ADDED A NEWER CATEGORY "ANTIQUE/VINTAGE TOYS" TO HELP KEEP SOME OF THESE MODELS SEPARATE FROM MY OTHER LISTINGS HERE. ONCE AGAIN, I THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATIONS ON THIS LIGHTLY USED AND FULLY OPERATIONAL , TIN, ALPS CHAPARRAL 2F. WHICH IS STILL IN IT'S ORIGINAL BOX AND IN GOOD TO VERY GOOD SHAPE/CONDITION.
