Lionel 8454 & 8455 Rio Grande GP-7 Powered & Dummy (Mint) - SOLD
Mfg #: 6-8454 & 6-8455
2014 Greenburg Price Guide: $195
This Rio Grande GP-7, powered and dummy pair of diesels was manufactured by Lionel in 1973-74. Both units feature die-cast, four-wheel trucks, with wire rails and a stamped metal chassis. The powered unit features a powerful Pullmor motor with traction tires and interior lighting.
Both the powered and the dummy units are in Mint condition (TCA, LCCA standards), they are "factory fresh" condition (i.e. "Mint", "brand new", "never been on the tracks or displayed"). The units have been thoroughly inspected to insure there are NO "screw cracks" or "side-scratches" where the side rails sometimes come in contact with the plastic cab.
The pair was issued in matching red & white Lionel boxes that are in crisp Like New condition, with some "yellowing" due to aging being the only flaw preventing a "Mint" box grade.
