Thanks Brian, I love it. I could never afford a boxed one when I was back in the UK. I managed to pick this beauty up in a vintage collectibles store just west of Toronto. I paid $220 which I think was a very fair price, it's in lovely condition as is the box.
Apparently this was the best selling toy of 1964, the year GI Joe arrived.
I also read somewhere that it is the best selling toy car of all time, not sure if this is correct, but I could see it being so.
