American Flyer 4021 For Parts or Restoration NR! AF

I amdoing some “house cleaning” and getting rid of some trains I don’t need, stuff I no longer have time to restore or are no longer interested in. Watch for more soon. I can combine shipping on these to save $$

Up for auction is an American Flyer 4021 caboose for parts or restoration. 7 million plates. Most of the paint has been stripped. It is complete except for the ladders, (both are missing) and 2 handrails. Missing 1 journal also. When I was stripping the red paint on the roof, I noticed that under it was yellow paint. The red paint was factory original, from what I could tell. So perhaps this was originally a yellow caboose American Flyer factory repainted in red?? There are some dents, bends in roof that would need to be fixed before painting, you should be able to see these in photos. Roof isn't straight. Small dent in cupola roof also. Pickup assembly and interior light are complete. The whitish stuff you see on some of the trim is just soap (from soaking the caboose in Tide to remove the paint). Comes off easily! MAAS metal polish will bring the trim back to like new condition. If you do not want to restore, there are a lot of good parts on here! Trucks bring good money. Original steps, windows, and plates are hard to find. Small bend in one roof handrail,easy to remove. Parts will come in a bag inside the caboose.
