Up for auction at NO RESERVE is a Vintage LIONEL #982 SUBURBAN SPLIT LEVEL House in excellent condition. The near impossible to find original box is also included. This snap together kit was offered by Lionel in 1960 only. I am not an expert on these kits, but I am confident that this kit was produced by Bachmann and sold through Lionel via a special license agreement.

The Split Level House was first built in the Bachmann Plasticville housing tract in 1959. I spread out all the parts and I photographed for you to examine. I think all major parts are present. All the window glass and curtains are present except the bay window and one in the rear. The glass pieces are actually still flexible and sticky. You will note a black spec in one of the windows, which is actually a piece of Lionel Coal. It can be removed, but I thought it appropriate to leave it there.

I borrowed the last image from another eBay auction offering the #982 Instruction Sheet just to show what the house will look like when assembled. You can do a search for the following title, but be quick as the listing ends shortly. LIONEL 982 SUBURBAN SPLIT LEVEL SET INSTRUCTIONS.

The original box is in pretty good condition considering the contents are not rectangular like most rolling stock and accessories. All panels and end flaps are present and intact. There is some tape on the corners, but it can be removed with the application of a little heat. The colors are vibrant and the graphics are solid. These boxes just can't be found anymore.

I took many photos to provide you with as much information as possible so confident bids can be entered on the rare piece. The pictures represent the exact item that will be shipped.

I usually receive several questions asking if I will accept other forms of payment for this and other listings. Of course I will. I will also combine shipments whenever possible.

Please see the pictures and bid accordingly. Please note that the shipping fees do NOT include insurance. Should the winning bidder desire insurance for shipment, please contact me prior to making payment. Good luck.
