LU&FO = L IGHTLY U SED & F ULLY O PERATIONAL. I REALLY HATE TO CALL THIS USED, BUT, 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! WHAT I DID BACK WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, WAS TO TEST MY NEW ADDITION, MESS AROUND WITH IT, REMOVE THE BATTERIES AND STACK THEM UP IN A FEW OF MY CLOSETS IN MY PARENTS HOME. I THEN MOVED ON TO MY NEXT PROJECT/VICTIM! I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE AFFAIR WITH PORSCHE CARS.

I CAN REMEMBER STEERING AT THESE AND DREAMING THAT SOME DAY IT WOULD ME BEHIND THAT STEERING WHEEL. SO AS A CHILD, I COULD ONLY ASK FOR AND COLLECT MODELS THEREOF.

THANKFULLY, AS AN ADULT, MY PASSION BECAME A REALITY! I HAVE OWNED 6 911'S TO DATE, 1 944 (FOR THE WIFE) AND 1 930.

I CURRENTLY OWN A 1984 911 CARRERA CABRIOLET AND A 1977 930.... HAVING HUNDREDS OF MODEL CARS TO CHOOSE FROM, MOSTLY PORSCHE AND CORVETTES, I HAVE DECIDED TO START LISTING SOME OF THESE HERE ON E-BAY. 90% 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 YONEZAWA PORSCHE RSR IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE! THIS MODEL IS A DIFFERENT SCALE OF 1:24.

THE EXACT DATE THIS WAS MADE ELUDES ME, BUT IF I WERE TO GUESS, I WOULD SAY THIS IS FROM THE EARLY TO MID'70'S. IT IS TIN ON THE TOP AND PLASTIC ON THE BOTTOM. THE BUMPERS AND SIDE ROCKERS ARE PART OF THE CHASSIS AND ARE INTEGRATED INTO THE CHASSIS, HENCE MADE OF PLASTIC. THIS MODEL IS RELATIVELY A SIMPLE ONE, BUT, DOES WORK SUPERBLY! THE COOL FEATURE IS THAT THE WHALE TAIL (REAR SPOILER) IS MADE OF CLEAR PLASTIC SO WHEN YOU SWITCH THIS MODEL ON, NOT ONLY DO THE REAR TIRES SPIN (BOTH OF THEM) THE ENGINES CENTER FAN LIGHTS UP AND FLASHES RED. THE FRONT WHEELS DO STEER, BUT, THIS ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THE VEHICLE STRIKES AN OBJECT AND REVERSES IT DRIVE. THE TIN LITHOGRAPH IS BEAUTIFUL AND BRIGHT. THEIR ARE A FEW AREAS WITH TINY, TINY SCRATCHES.

NO DENTS ARE EVIDENT ANYWHERE. YOU DO SEE SOME FOLDS IN THE TIN WHEN THIS WAS ORIGINALLY MADE AS THEY USED BIG PRESSES TO FORM THESE BODIES BACK IN THE 60'S, 70'S AND EVEN TILL THE EARLY'80S.

THESE ARE EXPECTED AND CONSIDERED ORIGINAL AND NORMAL. THE TIRES ARE MADE OF A HARD RUBBER/PLASTIC AND ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE WHEELS THEMSELVES. THESE ARE ALL ORIGINAL AND THEY ARE ALL MARKED WITH "EVA-TIRE" IN TWO LOCATIONS ON EACH TIRE. THE REAR DECK LID (WHALE TAIL/SPOILER) DOES LIFT OPEN TO EXPOSE THE TIN ENGINE WITH THE CLEAR PLASTIC FAN LENS (THIS IS WHERE YOU SEE THE RED FLASHING OF THE LIGHT BULB).

ON THE CHASSIS YOU HAVE THE INFAMOUS YONEZAWA LOGO WHICH IS A "Y" CONTAINED WITHIN A FIVE (5) PETAL LOTUS FLOWER ON THE BATTERY DOOR. THE ON/OFF SWITCH IS LOCATED HERE ON THE BOTTOM AS WELL. TO OPERATE THIS MODEL, YOU PLACE TWO (2) SIZE "C" BATTERIES (NOT INCLUDED) INTO IT'S BATTERY COMPARTMENT LOCATED ON IT'S CHASSIS AS ILLUSTRATED. THE POWER OR "ON/OFF" SWITCH IS ALSO LOCATED ON THE CHASSIS. YOU SIMPLY SLIDE THIS SWITCH OVER TO "ON" AND PLACE IT DOWN ON ANY HARD AND LEVEL SURFACE.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THESE VINTAGE MODELS WERE NOT DESIGNED WITH CARPET IN MIND, SO AVOID PLACING THIS MODEL ONTO IT AS THIS MIGHT CAUSE SOME INTERNAL GEAR ISSUES!! NOW WITH THIS MODEL PLACED DOWN, IT WILL TAKE OFF IN ONE DIRECTION... EITHER FORWARD OR REVERSE (DEPENDING ON WHERE IT'S LAST CYCLE ENDED).

WHEN THIS VEHICLE STRIKES AN OBJECT, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY REVERSE IT'S DIRECTION AND WHEN THIS VEHICLE BACKS UP, IT WILL ALSO STEER ITSELF WHILE BACKING UP. ONCE THE VEHICLE STRIKES ANOTHER OBJECT, IT WILL ONCE AGAIN CHANGE DIRECTION AND IF THIS DIRECTION IS FORWARDS, IT WILL STRAIGHTEN ITSELF OUT AS IT MOVES FORWARD. ALL THIS TIME, THE ENGINE LIGHT IS FLASHING AWAY. THIS WILL CONTINUE THIS CYCLE UNTIL YOU EITHER SHUT IT DOWN OR THE BATTERIES DIE! 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! ALL-IN-ALL YOU WILL BE VERY HARD PRESSED TO LOCATE ANOTHER YONEZAWA PORSCHE 911RSR MODEL THAT LOOKS LIKE AND WORKS LIKE THIS BABY DOES!

HERE YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT ANY COLLECTOR WOULD BE PLEASED TO ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION OF PORSCHE, MARTINI, TIN, BATTERY OPERATED, ANTIQUE/VINTAGE JAPANESE MODEL CARS! 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 TIN/METAL YONEZAWA PORSCHE RSR IS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL, OF AN ERA THAT HAS PASSED. THIS IS A 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. WILL BE SENT VIA UPS AND WILL BE FULLY INSURED. UTILIZING THIS METHOD TO OBTAIN ONES SIGNATURE IS THE MOST ECONOMICAL ROUTE TO GO......

SO PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR THIS ON YOUR END! I ALSO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SUBSTITUTE DHL AS AN INTERNATIONAL CARRIER (AT MY EXPENSE). 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. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE READ THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS SECTION AS THIS DOES APPLY TO YOU....

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.
