Can anyone tell me more about this car? 9 years, 1 month ago #1

I got this from my father 10 years ago, he told me he got it when he was about my age back then. so it's probably between 30 and 40 years old.


the only thing that's written on it is Ecstasy.


It's a mercedes benz 450 SLC


It works with a 26.590 Mhz controller and the controller is made in taiwan (I geuss so does the car)


it has spring suspension in the back, has sound effects for the engine and all te lights work (headlights, directions, stoplights, reverse)


here are some pictures:

















This is the controller





this is a 1/18 2CV just to show the size





What I would like to know:


-anything about this specific rc car (scale, how many where made, where was it sold...)


- are there spare parts available? (mine is missing one headlight, the mercedes sign up front, the front grille, the front bumper and the battery cap)


-what's its value? (I'm not planning to sell it because of it's sentimental value, but I just like to broaden my horizon)


-If there are no spare parts available, how can I make them myself?

I agree, that's the reason why I want to restore it (read: put time and money in it) while it's not Citroën

once the clip breaks, they get lost. but that's not the main part, I'm not planning to drive this again, but if I could find the rest it would be great!

This is a Bratz Merc made by MGA Entertainment Inc, 27 Mhz. Made in china 2004 not as old as yours. The two door coupe is about 44 cm long and about 18 cm wide. Apart from lights working and back and forth with steering, but the radio doesn't work. Darn it that is what I wanted most of all.

AcceoCitroen, I have not recently worked with plastic models, but when I did, I retained all the spruce materials, including chrome plated. I had boxes of the stuff. This offered materials for repairs as well as brainstorming. I believe craft stores or hobby shops offer thin sheet plastic.
I hope you find parts for it. Otherwise fashion the parts yourself. You can do it. It looks like a neat car to zoooooooom down the hallway.

I didn't find anything more about it... I think it's a small issue or something.
