Just a quick question regarding the packaging AUTOart uses regarding their 1982 Corvette.

What is the difference in models of the packages below.

I purchased the 1982 Corvette that comes in the box and styrofoam packaing.

Today is the first time I have seen the packaging with the clear window.

Is there any difference between the models themselves or is it all just in the packaging?

I found these photos on ebay, in fairness of using the sellers pics, I will include their links: Standard box with styrofoam packing material & Clear box.

I read that as well, however, looking at past and current auction prices, there doesn't seem to be a price difference that reflects an AUTOart ME.

Left :confused

Are you saying the clear box is the original release and the enclosed styrofoam box is the re-release?

You must have an extremely large monitor if those pics are side by side. :giggle

Thanks for explaining.

I have stumbled in both models. The simple difference is that the open boxed version is an earlier version, thus it does not have all the features of the closed box one.

I too have the closed box version, it is much better one. much more detail, much better value for money.

as the information you guys have provided in this thread has been informative to me, I don't know if it has been for all collectors.

I have been tracking ending auctions on eBay of these two different versions of the 1982 Corvette. After watching 6 auctions end, 3 of each, the clear window box seems to sell for more than the newer version. albeit not much.

I wonder if the difference is in being able to actually see the model as the clear window box allows.
