Description

This Taiyo Paris-Dakar Rally Citroen 2CV is in 100% working condition. It’s also very clean, the tyres are excellent, and all decals seem to be present.

There are some scuffs to a few decals, and both silver headlights appears missing. The front bumper has a break on one side, and there is an element missing from the roof (a roof rack).

Overall, this is an extremely rare R/C model though, and you may never even see another one. The underside is virtually mint (suggesting very little use), and as mentioned it runs perfectly.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.

History

In the early 1980s, Taiyo were producing highly realistic R/C toys, and the rally styled Citroen 2CV was an authentic replica of the cars often used in the Paris-Dakar rally in it’s early years. The toy is not really designed for heavy off-road use, but faithfully recreates the look of the off-road 2CVs that (unbelievably) were raced across the Sahara. It has a 2 speed gearbox. Today, this is one of the rarest Paris Dakar related R/C toys, and a great collectible for fans of the rally.
