Additional Product Information

HERE I AM OFFERING A VERY, VERY RARE, VERY LIGHTLY USED, FULLY TIN, VINTAGE, FRICTION DRIVEN, CONTINENTAL TRAILWAYS GOLDEN EAGLE  BUS.  THIS IS IN PERFECT WORKING AND COSMETIC CONDITION WITH IT'S ORIGINAL BOX! MORE ON THIS LATER.

LUIOB = LIGHTLY USED IN ORIGINAL BOX.

THIS MODEL IS NOT NUMBERED AND IS FRICTION DRIVEN FROM THE FRONT TWO (2) REAR WHEELS AND THE FRONT WHEELS SPIN FREELY, AS DO THE REAR TWO WHEELS. THIS MODEL DOES NOT STEER NOR HAS IT BEEN DESIGNED TO DO SO.

THIS BUS IS IN EXCELLENT TO SHOWCASE SHAPE/CONDITION. THIS IS 100% MADE OUT OF METAL, TO INCLUDE THE WHEELS AND THE TIN LITHOGRAPHED INTERIOR. THE FRICTION DRIVE HERE IS VERY STRONG AND DOES NOT SKIP A BEAT. ALL SIX (6) TIRES ARE MADE OF SOFT RUBBER AND HAVE NO CRACKS OR FLAT SPOTS.

THE PAINT AND FINISH ON THE BUS AND THE CHASSIS IS SHARP AND SHINY. IN FACT, BOTH OF THESE FINISHES LOOK LIKE THEY WERE PAINTED LAST MONTH! THE TIN LITHOGRAPHY STILL POPS TO THIS DAY. .

IT MAKES THIS LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE IT'S BIG BROTHER ... THE REAL BUS! ALTHOUGH THESE BUSES HAVE BEEN OUT OF SERVICE FOR DECADES NOW, IT'S A GREAT ITEM THAT REFLECTS THE BUSES AS THEY WERE BACK IN THE DAY!

ALL OF THE WHEELS ARE ORIGINAL AND AS WITH EVERY PIECE OF METAL HERE ON THIS BUS, YOU HAVE ZERO-POINT-ZERO RUST AND EVEN LESS CORROSION! NO PITS, NO CREASES, NO DINGS, NO NOTHING ... IT IS THAT SWEET AND IS SO BEING OFFERED!

CONTINENTAL TRAILWAYS OFFERED THEIR CUSTOMERS TWO DISTINCTIVE LEVELS OF LUXURY FOR LONG TRIPS. THIS BEING THE GOLDEN EAGLE REPRESENTS THE HIGH END OF TRAVEL. THE SILVER EAGLE REPRESENTED ITS MIDDLE CLASS WHILE ITS STANDARD CLASS OF SERVICE WAS NEITHER GOLD NOR SILVER.

HUNDREDS OF MODEL CARS TO CHOOSE FROM, MOSTLY PORSCHE AND CORVETTES, I.

HAVE DECIDED TO START LISTING SOME OF THESE HERE ON EBAY. 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.

THE ORIGINAL BOX OFFERED HERE IS IN FAIR CONDITION AT BEST. BOTH OF THE END PANELS OF THE LID ARE MISSING WHILE ONE IS LOOSE, FLOATING IN THE BOX. YOU HAVE TEARS, STAINS, AND TAPE USED ON THE LID. THE BASE IS IN FARE BETTER SHAPE THAN THE LID. THE COPY AND PICTURE DOES THE MODEL JUSTICE AND DISPLAYS NICELY WITH IT. .

AND POLICIES, I VERY RARELY DO NOT TEST WHAT IT IS I AM OFFERING HERE ON.

EBAY. 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, OR A SIMPLE PUSH TO SEE IF THE FRICTION DRIVE IS WORKING!  I AM NOT ONE OF.

THOSE SELLERS WHO WILL EVER SAY "THIS MODEL IS UNTESTED AND AS SUCH IT.

IS SOLD IN AS IS CONDITION" OR , "I HAVE NOT TESTED THE WIND-UP.

MECHANISM (CLOCK-WORK) AS I DO NOT HAVE A KEY, SO THIS WILL BE SOLD UNTESTED". THIS GOLDEN EAGLE BUS 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 AM SURE WE BOTH.

DO NOT WANT ANY ISSUES HERE AND THIS IS ONE EASY STEP TO AVOID ANY!

TAKE PRIDE IN MY MODELS THAT I OFFER HERE IN THE EBAY WORLD. I DO HAVE.

OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE.

ALL-IN-ALL YOU WILL BE VERY, VERY HARD PRESSED TO LOCATE ANOTHER FULLY TIN, FRICTION DRIVEN, GOLDEN EAGLE BUS THAT LOOKS LIKE AND WORKS LIKE THIS ONE DOES! ADD TO THIS THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL BOX AND NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT ANY COLLECTOR WOULD BE PLEASED AND PROUD TO ADD TO THEIR COLLECTION OF TIN, FRICTION DRIVE, VINTAGE, PUBLIC TRANSIT, JAPANESE MODEL CAR, BUS, TRAIN COLLECTION!!

THIS BUS IS 10 1/2 INCHES IN LENGTH AND ALMOST 2 1/2 INCHES IN WIDTH AND 3 INCHES TALL. .

PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THESE PICTURES AS THEY DO BECOME AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE DESCRIPTION AND IF YOU HAVE ANY.

QUESTIONS OR DESIRE ADDITIONAL PICTURES, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME.

VIA EBAY MESSAGING AND I WILL DO.
