Minichamps 1/18 McLaren Ford M23 Gilles Villeneuve 1977

Hello everyone, the time has come for me to thin my die-cast collection a bit, and so for a couple of weeks I will be offering for sale some really nice pieces I have owned for a few years that are all in absolute mint condition. Some really nice, kick-a-- race cars that have either always been displayed inside a display case, or have never even been removed from their box, in some cases. To ensure a quick sale I will be listing all models up for auction instead of having a fixed-price. So if you decide to bid I wish you the best of luck because there is no reserve - the highest bid will win!
Up for sale is the McLaren Ford-Cosworth V8 in which the late (great) Gilles Villeneuve made his Grand Prix debut at the 1977 British GP. Made by Minichamps in 1/18 scale, note that the model has been professionally converted from the plain release livery to now reflect the historically accurate tobacco race livery. Conversion of the driver as well. This is a beautiful version of the stalwart M23. The conversion is impeccable and the model is in mint condition and has never been displayed. The box is also included and is also in outstanding condition with no flaws.
I ship via UPS within the continental US because of the better tracking & insurance offered. Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and any other destinations are shipped USPS
