Speaking of, why does so many people put RARE on their listings when so many collectors know it isn't true?:angry:

Yeah, maybe that's why they think it is rare. I have the normal Suave car with Jr.'s name on the door, and there is a bunch of them. I just want to make sure I'm not missing something.

It has no box to it. Anyone can say its a promo. No box, no promo. This could well be a standard version.

It was a promo car. Came in a Sauve promo box. Was kinda screwed up cause Almirola drove it and Jr. was in the #7. Rare?...well, it wasn't the easiest one to come across. I think I heard it was sold on the haulers earlier in the year. I bought mine off of eBay. There was one seller who had them from like $8 and shipping. God bless

Actually, it's a little more I guess...

Beings it does not have a box, is there anything different from the normal Lionel Suave that would make it worth buying?

Is there anything on the car that proves it is a low production promo? For example, if I matched that car to my car in the box, could I see a difference or tell which one was the promo with a special mark, number, or variation?

was just low production

Kind of hard to know what production numbers are. The loose one should be the exact same car as the ones in the box. Who know, the guy may have taken it out of the box and threw it out. But, I don't know of any other way the car was put out other than the promo version in the box. God bless

Thank you for the insight! This is why I ask the members of DCZ, because you are all very knowledgeable.
