I have this Unique Ford GT that I'm getting ready to list on ebay and I have two questions. Can anyone give me a close-up of the driver's head? Did it come painted? Also, it appears that this body is held on by tiny brass rivets. Is this the way it came from the factory?

Thanks

To answer your questions I cannot post a picture but the driver head was unpainted.  I have both the Ford Roadster and the Cobra with boxes but only one head. And yes they were riveted this way. I think this was the "end of the line" and cheapo range for Unique.

Thanks, Allan, just saw your response. 

 

This car had an unpainted head that looked "Russkit" like but I thought it was incorrect. 

 

Rivets, really? How much cheaper than a screw could they be, especially when they bought them by the tens of thousands. 

 

Makes you appreciate Cox, Monogram and some others all the more.

 

Thanks again

if your Russkit drivers head looks square Frankensteinish it would be similar to the one I have.It came with the Slotcar so I am assuming correct?
