Default Can anyone help me locate this???

Hi,

Thanks for any help in advance.

I am trying to locate an RC truck sold by radio shack back in the 80's (most likely 85ish). My brother had one and I would like to find him one again. It was a Toyota SR5 pickup. Blue in color. It had a switch in the bed of the truck for 2 or 4 wheel (maybe high low) and another switch underneith. It was not an expensive truck or anything. Probably $70 back then. If I remeber correclty it took about 8 c batteries (recharchable). Any help apprecaited. Not sure if it was a Nikko or not.

Thanks

I found it. It is located on page 153 of this old Radio Shack catalogue. Anybody know where I can find one today? Was it made by Nikko? It is the Malibu 4x4 http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/catalogs/1988/

It was definately a Toyota! I know because I had the same one! It was was pretty sweet, high/low gears, 2wd/4wd switch! It had absolutely no suspension, but still managed to be able to go virtually anywhere. I will be watching this thread, I would love to see one of these again!

Edit, just saw that last post, that is definately it!

OMG I'm all nastalgic now looking at the golden arrow. Feels good to see that old picture again.
$150 for an R/C was alot of money back in 1987.

Not sure anyone noticed but you can go to http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/ca...directory.html and they have Radio shack catalogues as far back as the 40's. Lot's of RC;s from 86, 85 , 84 etc.

In case anybody is interested.
