Shelby Roadster 12v

We purchased this one about 4 years ago when our little guy arrived. Spent about a year taking it all apart and refinishing to match mine (not easy to get apart). He drives the wheels off of it. Original color was red. There is a site that sells spare parts such as wheels, batteries, electric mtrs, gear boxes etc. buy spares as when they start riding they don't want to stop.
