TEXACO NORTH DAKOTA MODEL TANKER SHIP:
$118

MODEL OF TEXACO OIL TANKER 'TEXACO NORTH DAKOTA' THAT WAS SOLD BY TEXACO DEALERS AROUND 1960. THIS MODEL IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION - THERE ARE NO BROKEN OR CRACKED PARTS (EXTERNAL) AND ALL OF THE MASTS ARE INCLUDED (THEY HAD BEEN REMOVED AND KEPT IN A SMALL CONTAINER) IN THE BOX. IT DOES APPEAR THERE MAY HAVE BEEN A SMALL CIRCULAR DECAL UNDER THE BOW BETWEEN THE ANCHORS WHICH IS MISSING.WHAT IS NOT WORKING IS THE MOTOR THAT DRIVES THE PROPELLER - I FIDDLED WITH IT FOR A WHILE BUT COULD NOT GET ANY RESPONSE. THE WIRE THAT ATTACHES TO THE UPPER BATTERY CONTACT IS BROKEN (UNSOLDERED) AND THE CLIP THAT SECURES THE BATTERY CONTACT TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE PILOT HOUSE IS LOOSE. TO PURSUE THE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS ANY FURTHER WOULD HAVE REQUIRED REMOVING THE ENTIRE DECK AND I DECIDED NOT TO DO THAT. THE BOX SHOWS A FAIR AMOUNT OF WEAR AND TEAR. IT LOOKS LIKE THE INNER TOP FLAP HAS BEEN REPAIRED WITH MASKING TAPE AND THE OUTER TOP FLAP HAS A CORNER MISSING (SEE LAST PICTURE).BY THE WAY, THE 'TEXACO NORTH DAKOTA' WAS BUILT BY NEWPORT NEWS SHIPBUILDING IN 1953, THE FIRST OF 5 SHIPS OF A CLASS BUILT FOR THE TEXAS COMPANY - THE OTHERS WERE THE 'NEW YORK', 'CONNECTICUT', 'CALIFORNIA' AND 'FLORIDA'. IN 1981 SHE WAS SOLD AND RENAMED THE 'BLANCO'. THE VESSEL WAS SCRAPPED IN 1984.PLEASE EMAIL IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AND THANKS FOR LOOKING.
