Default Vintage Tamiya Wild Willy

SOLD SOLD SOLD....

Restored this awhile back. Tested with a 13T brushless on 2S, and all good. Still popping crazy willies on demand.

Few things to take note:
a) 1 major challenge during the restore project was the chipped off front left fender. I've managed to conceal it with some soft airplane plys. Hardly noticeable.

b) Tires are in good condition, not dry and no cracking.

c) Original Tamiya 540 motor included.

No electronics included. Only 1 choice of original custom painted driver.
Gnarly Willy and Iron Willy excluded from choice. You can purchase them at separate price.
Please look clearly at the pictures, any questions please feel free to ask.
Last 3 pics show the "Before" restoration state.

It's sad to part it, given i've personally done all the restored work. Just thought i put it on the market to earn some funds for a new project.
This will be a nice shelf queen, or you can even restore it better.

All offers considered.































Mr Gnarly Willy








Captain Willy - Captain America version





Iron Willy - Iron Man version





Before Restoration:

Thanks for looking...
