THIS PARTICULAR MODEL WAS OFFERED/MARKETED THROUGH SEARS ROEBUCK AND CO. LUIOB = L IGHTLY U SED I N O RIGINAL B OX. THIS HAD BEEN STASHED AWAY WITH A FEW HUNDRED OR SO ADDITIONAL MODELS ALL OF WHICH I HAVE PERSONALLY OWNED FOR UP TO 5 DECADES! 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.

9 5 % OF THESE ARE ONE-OF-A-KINDS LISTINGS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHOW YOU AN ARRAY OF PICTURES AND DESCRIBE THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. THIS ALPS/SEARS POLICE CAR IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE! THIS MODEL IS A GOOD SIZE OF ALMOST 12 INCHES LONG (30CM) AND IS IN ALL AROUND EXCELLENT OVERALL CONDITION/SHAPE. AS WITH ALL BATTERY OPERATED MODELS, THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS TO INSTALL THE BATTERIES! THIS ALPS POLICE CAR TAKES TWO (2) SIZE "D" BATTERIES WHICH ARE INSTALLED VIA THE CHASSIS (NOT INCLUDED). THIS MODEL HAS WHAT WAS/IS CALLED "NON-STOP ACTION" WHICH EVENTUALLY BECAME KNOWS AS "BUMP'N GO". ONCE YOU LOCATE THE BATTERY BOX AND INSTALL THESE BATTERIES, YOU THEN CLOSE AND LOCK DOWN THE BATTERY DOOR AND THEN SWITCH THIS MODEL "ON". PLACE IT DOWN ON A HARD SURFACE (NONE OF THESE BUMP'N GO DRIVES WERE DESIGNED FOR CARPETS) AND WATCH ALL OF THE ACTION! THIS MODEL IS VERY SIMPLE TO USE AND TO DESCRIBE.

ONCE PLACED DOWN ON A HARD SURFACE, THE BUMP'N GO DRIVE (NON-STOP ACTION) TAKES OVER AND THE MODEL WILL TAKE OFF UNTIL IT STRIKES AN OBJECT AND THEN IT WILL VEER OFF AND CHANGE DIRECTION, ALL THE TIME THE ROOFS LIGHT IS FLASHING ON AND OFF. WITH THIS PARTICULAR MODEL, YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO MANUALLY SWITCH THE SIREN "ON AND OFF" WITH THE LEVER LOCATED ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE, TOP REAR QUARTER.

THIS SIREN WORKS PERFECTLY AS DOES THE SWITCH TO DISABLE IT. THE BODY IS IN ALL AROUND VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT OVERALL CONDITION/SHAPE WITH SOME SMALL SIGNS OF USAGE. THE BODY IS MADE ENTIRELY FROM TIN AND HAS NO DIMPLES, CREASES OR SERIOUS ISSUES. ALL OF THE GLASS IS REALLY A DARK BLUE PLASTIC AND HAS NO DEEP SCRATCHES, CRACKS OR IMPERFECTIONS. THE ROOFS LIGHT IS AS NEW AND ORIGINAL AS ARE BOTH ROOF TOP SIRENS. AGAIN, YOU DO HAVE SOME NICKS AND TINY SCRATCHES HERE AND THERE AS THIS MODEL WAS USED, BUT NEVER ABUSED! MOST TO ALL OF THE CHROME STILL SHINES NICELY AND YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL FOUR (4) SHINY CHROME HUB CAPS STILL IN PLACE. THE FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS ARE STILL WELL ATTACHED AS ARE THE WINDSHIELD AND REAR WINDOW CHROME MOLDINGS, ALL OF THESE ITEMS ARE SHINY WITH A MINIMAL AMOUNT OF TARNISH PRESENT. THE CHASSIS IS LIKE THE TOP IS MADE FULLY OF TIN AND THIS SHOWS LITTLE TO NO USAGE ANYWHERE.

THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT IS VERY CLEAN (PLASTIC ON THE INSIDE) WITH NO CORROSION, CRACKS OR ISSUES. THE BATTERY COMPARTMENTS DOOR (ALSO TIN) WORKS PERFECTLY AND IS FACTORY ATTACHED. ON THE REAR OF THIS CHASSIS, CENTERED YOU HAVE THE "ON/OFF" SWITCH WHICH WORKS PERFECTLY AS WELL. ALL OF THE SCREWS ARE ORIGINAL AND NONE ARE REMOTELY STRIPPED. THE MYSTERY NON-STOP ACTION IS LOCATED HERE AND IS IN EXCELLENT ALL AROUND SHAPE/CONDITION WITH NO FLAT SPOTS, CRACKING OR DRY-ROT ON THE TWO SMALL WHEELS.

ALL OF THE DECALS ARE ORIGINAL AND ACTUALLY NOT DECALS AT ALL. THESE ARE ALL DONE VIA TIN LITHOGRAPHY AND ARE ALL STILL SHARP AND SHINY! THE FRONT WHEELS DO NOT ADJUST (NOR STEER) AND JUST ROLL FREELY. THESE DO NOT TOUCH THE GROUND AS THE BUMP'N GO DRIVE CONTROLS THE FRONT END AND MOTION OF THIS MODEL. THE REAR WHEELS ALSO SPIN FREELY AND ARE IN CONTACT WITH THE GROUND. ONCE AGAIN, ALL F OUR (4) OF THEIR HUBCAPS ARE PRESENT AND ORIGINAL TO THIS MODEL. THESE ARE ALL TIN AND NO PLASTIC IS FOUND ON THESE HUB CAPS.

SEARS MODEL NUMBER FOR THIS ITEM WAS/IS:49 58071 WHILE ALPS PLACES THEIR NUMBER ON THE MODELS LICENSE PLATES... IN THIS CASE "A 5784".

THE ORIGINAL BOX IS PRESENT AND COMPLETE! THIS MODEL HAS A "SEARS" BOX WHICH WAS/IS DESIGNED BY ALPS WHICH WAS EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE AT SEARS STORES WORLDWIDE. THE COLORS AND GRAPHICS ARE CLEAN AND SHARP. YOU HAVE NO ADDED TAPE OR GLUE FOUND ANYWHERE ON THIS BOX. YOU DO HAVE SOME SLIGHT SHELF RASHING AS THIS BOX WAS MOVED AROUND.

IN ADDITION, YOU HAVE A SMALL TEAR WITH A PIECE MISSING FROM ONE OF THE LARGER SIDES (AS PICTURED). YOU ALSO HAVE WHAT IS LEFT OF A PRICE TAG ON ONE OF THE SMALLER SIDES (ALSO AS PICTURED).

PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT MY PICTURES AS THESE DO BECOME AN IMPORTANT SE CTION OF THIS LISTING. AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WILL BE RECEIVING FROM ME AS THIS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND LISTING AND ALL OF THE PICTURES ARE OF THE ACTUAL MODEL/BOX! 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.

I TEST EVERYTHING PRIOR TO LISTING THEM 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! I LOVE THIS ONE, "I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS MODEL AS I HAVE NO BATTERIES OF THIS SIZE"!!

AFTER ALL, HOW HARD IS IT TO TOSS IN A FEW BATTERIES OR TO WIND UP A MODEL?? PRETTY DAMN EASY IF YOU ASK ME. THIS ALPS/SEARS "HIGHWAY PATROL" CAR IS FULLY TESTED AND WILL BE ONCE AGAIN, PRIOR TO ME PACKAGING THIS UP. 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! THIS VINTAGE, ALPS/SEARS CHEVROLET IMPALA "HIGHWAY PATROL" CAR IS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AND OF AN ERA THAT HAS LONG 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! 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. THIS ALPS/SEAR POLICE CAR MODEL. WILL BE SENT VIA UPS AND WILL BE FULLY INSURED.

UNFORTUNATELY, IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD SOME RUN-IN'S WITH SOME VERY SCRUPULOUS INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, WHO BY THEIR NATURE. "DO NOT PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS". SO PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR THIS ON YOUR END! INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE READ THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS SECTION AS IT DOES APPLY TO YOU......

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.

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!
