The set comprises:
1) Batmobile in gleaming gloss black finish with both original figures of Batman and Robin. Tow hook version. Bright red ‘bat’ wheels, gleaming chrome, gold parts. Lacks wheel suspension and aerial. Area on the base has dulled. Little dashboard chrome loss.
2) Batboat sits atop the gold trailer with cast wheels. Complete with both seated figures of Batman and Robin. More desirable ‘tin fin’ version (later issues were plastic). Virtually mint condition with a very small mark to the tow ring.
Opened Secret Instruction Packet (faded print) contains sprue of missiles (one loose) and badge (no Instructions).
Both items sit in a bright and clean yellow plastic inner (tiny wear).
The colourful outer box is clean and the graphics are day-one fresh and vibrant since this box has been within its original plain card over-sleeve. Crisp. Resistant end flaps. No tears. No graffiti. Smooth, original cellophane has one small puncture. Note that the original owner removed a small section of the reverse of the header card section.
Original plain buff card over-sleeve is complete and tear-free, showing barely any wear at all.
