1975 Jerobee RC Car Sells For $285

Recently on eBay a 1975 Jerobee RC car, similar to the real car owned by Oscar Koveleski and driven by Tony Adamowicz, sold for $285. The car was in it's original packaging and showed little use. Here is some of the description by the owner:

Up for sale is this 1975 Jerobee Commando RC car in its original box. I recieved this as a 15th birthday present back in Aug of 1975 when i was living in New Jersey at the time. Due to the bad winter weather and pot holes in the street Ii only used the Jerobee car a few times then it was put in the basement and forgotten about 'til just recently. I also was just learning how to drive real cars at the time so i really didn't have time for the Jerobee.

Anyway, my brother was cleaning out the basement recently so he could sell the house when he discovered the Jerobee car hidden under some boxes and some other stuff that had accumulated over the years. I live in florida now and totally forgot about this Jerobee car. My brother then shipped the Jerobee car down to me in Florida and I was amazed at the condition of the car as well as the original box the car came in after all these years of sitting in the basement gathering dust.

It's in mint condition with all of the paper work inside the box such as drivers manual, Jerobee brochures, parts price lists, ect.

When I first got the car as a birthday present I went down to a hobby shop which was a few blocks away from where i lived and bought a extra body as well as extra parts thinking that i was going to keep and use the jerobee car for a long time which didn't happen.

I have not tested the radio or the engine to see if they work however i pulled on the starter cord a few times and it pulls as if it were brand new with no kinks or binds whatsoever. As I mentioned earlier i have a extra red Dodge Challenger body as well as a assortment of Jerobee parts that are brand new in there packages. The body that is on the car now is a orange McLaren body with all body pieces in place and in mint condition such as drivers head, roll bar, windshield,a nd engine pipes. This is a complete package for the serious collector and I hope it will go to a new home.

    sedans and the SUVs. With the Mini Cooper auto parts Q45 being the flagship sedan, the Mini Cooper auto parts found its place in the
