Vintage Formula 1 by Eidai Grip, Tyrell Ford 6 Wheeler

I've been eyeing this rare diecast in mint condition and my search for my very first big scale retro diecast in Formula 1 has finally been found.  This example is a big at 1:28 scale and heavy because of the 95 percent metal construction.  I found  this beautiful Eidai grip in Tokyo and after thinking for 5 minutes, I told the salesperson to bag it!  The opportunity to own this beautiful rare diecast may never cross my path again so i decided to bring this specimen home in Manila.


I hope you guys like it!  Comments and queries are always welcome!
