This is a real nice one folks from way back in 1980. The box is very nice with some minor edge wear, and a small ding in carboard on top surface and a little staining on front panel on the cardboard. And the toy is Mint and never been out of the box, see the photos and you will see how a nice item this really is folks. Also see my long list of old vintage Ertl toys NIB right now including other construction toys, John Deere, IH, New Holland, Ford etc. All would be great Christmas presents this year.
