Up for sale is a Tamiya Wild Willy's SWB 5835 (Short Wheelbase). As you may or may not know; there are several differences between the rare SWB and the very common LWB (long wheelbase) version of the Wild Willy. I've seen on Tamiyaclub that as many as 30 or so individual parts are different between the two versions and each of those parts can have several differences as well. I have carefully gone over this car and have found everything to be consistent with this being an original, unrestored SWB Wild Willy's.
The only part I have found that is not an original SWB part is two of the three body clips. The condition is very good overall. The tires show light to moderate cracking but are very usable.The wheels have no scrapes or road rash. The bottom of the chassis and diff show virtually no wear. The diff spins good with no binding or noise. The body is nice overall.
The front grill is damaged but the body does not have any cracks, breaks or repairs. There is little to no scrapes or road rash on the body and wheelie bars. It includes the original motor and speed control (untested).No other electronics are included. This is a used 35+ year old RC and it is not perfect. Please look at the pics carefully and do your research. The above description is based on my research and my opinion. I have done my best to describe this item as accurately as possible. This Jeep is Not ready to run.
