Description: This is a restored 1960 SMP1:25 scale model of "The Smurfmobile", the 1960 Corvair 700-Series sedan that I owned back in the mid-1990's. The actual car went on to be my older daughter's first car - She was the only kid in her high school parking lot to have a car 20 years older than she was! I had already built a model of the car for her; This one I buiolt for my own collection.
