This is the "BLUE BEETLE", a customized 1929 Ford Pick-Up truck kit by Monogram. This is kit number PC93-149, and is the only version of this kit that I'm aware of. This kit was purchased by my father new, and was opened for inspection or daydreaming, then put away until these photos were taken. As far as I can tell, this car is complete and is as perfect as when it was originally boxed. The only flaw I found was that two of the tires were snapped together (see photos), otherwise, this kit is about as perfect as you would be able to find. This kit features a Cadillac engine, a choice of top up or down, a bed cover and full scuba gear including skin diving gear, air tank, fins and mask. We had high hopes of building these kits over the years, but we never got around to building them and at this point in time never will. We are selling off a collection of promotional models and kits that took us over 30 years to complete. If you are looking for a particular model, e-mail me at , maybe I can help.


PAYMENT: Due to recent changes in eBay rules, I can now only accept Paypal payments for auction items other than a real automobile. These are the new rules that I need to follow. Please do not pay until you receive an invoice from me. I will send an invoice with actual shipping charges. Once you receive the invoice, payment MUST be received in my Paypal account within 7 days. If any other payment arrangements are needed, please ask before bidding.

: I don’t misrepresent or overstate my items. I look at everything before the listing is prepared and try to point out ALL MAJOR FLAWS. But, I am only human and sometimes I could miss something that doesn’t jump out at me. I do offer a 14 day money back guarantee-details below. If my descriptions leave ANY question about the condition of the item please ask.

SHIPPING; PLEASE READ CLOSELY: Domestic items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail with insurance NO EXCEPTIONS UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED IN THE ITEM DESCRIPTION AS SOME ITEMS WOULD BE TOO EXPENSIVE TO SHIP PRIORITY MAIL. (Continental United States only; International shipping will be quoted on an individual basis determined by country) . An invoice will be sent at the end of the auction with shipping charges based on your location. Priority Mail is the only shipping option due to First Class or Parcel Post items taking extremely long to arrive, and I have received bad DSR ratings even though I did everything I stated I would do to expedite shipping. My shipping costs are a fixed amount based on current USPS rates. I use new boxes as often as possible, I package everything properly, and I insure all items. I do this as quickly as possible. None of these things are cheap or free, neither are the eBay sales fees and Paypal fees. My point is that while I do not intend to make money on shipping, I will not lose money either. I charge the flat rate Priority Mail fee, and I PAY FOR THE INSURANCE. Please realize this when bidding so there are no problems or disappointments later.

I'm happy to combine shipping on multiple items at a discounted shipping rate. Please contact me for specific shipping charges. I ship Priority Mail flat rate with insurance on all items. If another shipping method is preferred, please contact me BEFORE the end of the auction so we can discuss this.

Due to my work schedule, I’m usually only able to ship on Saturdays. If any other shipping arrangements are required, please ask before bidding so there are no disappointments, I'll do my best to make it work.

International Bidders: For items over $75.00, shipping MUST be either Priority Mail or Express Mail insured, as I've had nothing but problems with first class uninsured outside the continental United States . Please e-mail me before bidding for a shipping quote so there are no surprises AFTER the auction ends, or go to , this item will ship from zi...
