This handsome old guy was only made from 1962-1966!  He is an incredible example of vintage resist dapple grey and the pride the painters took in their work in Chicago.  He wears four airbrushed socks, a bald face, and gold bobs.

This This guy is hard to rate, because he's magnificent, but he has a serious finish issue.  He doesn't have a single rub, and very little yellowing.  He sports unpainted eye whites and beautiful eyes.  His hooves are shaded and with the gloss, they look like porcelain.  His bobs have darkened, but are still metallic gold, and those dapples!  He has some of the biggest, most gorgeous dapples I've ever seen!  Okay, now for the weird issue:  His clearcoat has bubbled over almost his whole body.  They are raised and some crackle when touched, like cello plastic.  (They're hard to show in photos, but the closeups may give you an idea.)  He has tiny holes in the bottom of two hooves, showing he was once mounted to a base of some sort.  Perhaps another layer of clearcoat or something had been added to him, causing the bubbling.  He displays beautifully, but could certainly never be shown.  So, if you're looking for a unique and spectacularly painted model, and don't need to show him, he could be your guy.
