Arrow Vintage Tamiya Truck F/S

It's definitely an old one. Kinda cool how the trans has cv joints coming off of it. It has one body mount on the right side missing and the other two have broken tops. You could put any kind of body mount on it for $5. Has the original futaba steering servo and servo for the wiper speed control.

What is this and how much is it worth? The truck is in GREAT shape. Everything looks excellent on it with the exception of the broken body mounts and the body it has with it. The side plates of the tranny are metal. It's just dusty from sitting. Everything on it is in excellent shape.

SOLD SOLD SOLD







It has the on off switch and a futaba 72mhz receiver.

Default truck

That is a vintage Tamiya Blackfoot. That truck is over 20+ years old.
Clean it up and you just might get more than $55 for it. Look on eBay and see what they sell for there. In that condition, it will easily sell for $55.
How does the tranny/diff feel, is it smooth, crunchy, stiff from sitting, etc...
How does the motor feel, does it work. Hook a battery directly to it, that will tell you. What conditon is the truck body in? Having a decent body with all the parts will help it to sell better.
Mint conditon Blackfoots sell for over $200. I bought one just the other day that was in great shape for $115 shipped. Yours looks to be fairly rough, but I would try to clean it up and go from there. If your wanting to turn it over and make a quick buck, $55 shipped should go pretty fast.

Price drop to $50 shipped.

The body won't come with the truck. The body is broken and not worth sending with the chassis.

The trans is smooth as can be. All the tranny parts work smoothly. The axles are good. It has NO broken suspension parts at all. The steering works smoothly. I don't know about the wiper speed control. I haven't put any juice to it. I'm sure the motor would work with power to it. The truck is simply dusty from sitting in our shop. It's in great shape except the body mounts and body are broken.

I would let it go for $50 shipped....

Default Blackfoot

I would sell the body with it. Someone may want it for parts too. Does the body have the front grill and rear tailgate? You should easily get $50 for it.
