That decal could be a very desireable commodity.. :D

I bought the first 4 of the RPRU Cubs that Ken Updike received back in Jan of this year for the grandkids, and then had to buy more at RPRU when I discovered the ones Chap 17 was selling had the decal in them.

Rudi, I have a #235 that I am willing to part with since I now have a 689 Special Edition that better matches my '48.

The tractor is perfect and the box is not torn but shows some age. I think I paid $25 for it several years ago and would just want to get my money back.

One more variation, that is not listed/shown here. The #448 red cub has a 1 day production run error. It has white wheel rims, not red rims. They are date coded (have to pull mine out of storage to get the date) so the fake ones can be traced. This is a genuine ERTL error, confirmed by ERTL.

The rim color is the only difference.

Did you say that Ertl was coming out with some more Cub items? Or am I thinking of someone else.

The only "legal" comment I can make is that the production more CUB toys are being evaluated at this time. 8)

Thanks for the reply, I will keep my eyes peeled to see what the evaulating produces.

Well now, another Christmas present I guess:

Take one more off of the list. I guess this means just the elusive #235 left to acquire. I just bought the 1991 SE Cub on :eBay:
