If there was ever the RC car equivalent of a needle in a haystack, it would have to be tracking down one of the original Tamiya Porsche 959 kits. Back in ’86 when this 1/12 scale car was released, it had pretty much every feature the RC car enthusiast could ask for including oil filled aluminum shocks, a full time 4wd drivetrain, the RX-540VZ Technigold motor and even a working set of headlights. Unfortunately, because the kit was fairly expensive, not many were made, and those 959s that did reach the hands of a hobbyist usually took a beating. So, not only are they hard to track down, they’re pretty much impossible to find new in the box. That’s why we were so shocked to find that a member of ebay actually had one for sale. The box looks to be in excellent shape, and all of the parts are still packed in their original blister packs. There is no doubt this one will result in one heck of a bidding war. Check it out below.
