This toy powers up. The lights flash properly, the spoiler goes up and down, and the wheels start and stop. The wheels are stiff and don’t roll very well to move the car along. The interior of the battery box is clean but does show a broken contact bar. The car still works with batteries as the battery connector has been rigged. Broken piece of battery box is included. The steering/locking wheels function. The car shows staining and light oxidation on body. Plastic windows are free of cracks but do show some very light scratches. Box shows shelf wear with taped edges, creases, and some staining but is intact and complete.
