I must have bought this kit in 1990 in a shop. I had bought any Airfix car kit I was interested in. And even now, buying Lindberg and other brands at eBay, the kits are in good condition. You may get the Bugatti 35b, 1930 Alfa Romeo, MGB, Triumph TR 4A, DB 5 (old and new), Monty's Humber, even the MG K3 Magnette for about 10 euros (8.90 pounds), because they are not rare. The rare ones are very expensive (as would be the 917), but mostly they are in good condition too.
