MPC Kit #873- Hot Rod Magazine Stroker McGurk Surf Rod - Builder's Special
These are new kits that received some box damage in the warehouse. If you just want to build this fun kit, this is a great savings! New & sealed, with parts guaranteed to be good.
Stroker McGurk, the Hot Rodder’s Buddy was a clever character created by renowned photographer and artist, Tom Medley. Stroker could be seen regularly, in the comic strips Medley created for Hot Rod Magazine. In the 1960s, MPC forever immortalized the character in plastic model kit form and now, after more than four decades of being out of production, McGurk is back! The first model from the series to return is “Surf Rod.” It’s a hilarious “action” kit featuring Stroker riding a surfboard powered by a big dragster motor! He’s holding the reigns with one hand and shifting into high gear with the other!

What is a builder's special? These are kits that we have marked way down because the box may be damaged, stained, dented, creased, faded or otherwise not suitable for collecting or gift giving, but does not prevent the builder from completing a fine model. Modelers love these, because of the low price. All sales are final, but we will try to point out any issues with the kit itself. Most have parts that are as new, many have sealed parts. most decals are good. Occasionally we may miss a small part that is missing and you'll have to go to your spares box, but you'll find our descriptions are usually accurate.
