This is a vintage Schaper Stomper Esso semi truck from I believe 1983 and it is one of the hardest trucks to find ever. I have been told by an avid collector of these trucks that in almost 40 years of collecting stompers he has only ever seen 2 of these.
The truck and trailer itself are in amazing condition. The side of the trailer that faced out of the packaging has some very minor blemishes and scuffing. Remember this truck is close to if not 40 years old. I have taken very clear pictures of the slight imperfections on that side of the trailer so you can see the exact condition. The rest of the truck and trailer I would describe as almost perfect.
There are no issues with the rest of the truck as far as Im concerned. Please keep in mind that the truck has never been used or even had batteries put in it.The plastic tray that the truck and trailer sit in is in decent shape. It is basically intact however there is some plastic missing at the bottom where the tires of the truck and trailer sit in the tray. The box is also in very good condition considering its age. Its a little wavy in some areas, there are some slight creases a small hole in the back, and a little bit of fading on the end flaps. The cellophane window that the box originally came with is however gone. Overall it displays very well even without the clear window. Thats pretty amazing considering how old it is and the fact that the window was missing from the box. Theres even a coupon for 50 cents off a pack of Energizer batteries but it expired in 1986 lol! I will make absolutely sure that the truck is packed well in a good sized, sturdy box with lots of bubble wrap for protection. I dont think theres much else I can say about this classic Stomper. I have done my very best to provide the most accurate description I can.
Please study the pictures carefully before making a decision. I think that if you pass on this one, the chances of ever seeing another for sale here or anywhere else is extremely low.
