|#6327 ASTRO TRAC
MISSILE CONVOY SET
Copyright 1967 --first year available 1968
This was a
"Sears" exclusive set sold through the 1968 catalog that featured the mighty
mobile planet exploring Astro Trac and three Mobile Launch Pads. The launch pads were
molded in "white" plastic similar in construction as the Cat Trac. With solid
molded, non moving tank treds. However they did have cheaply made plastic wheels
underneath so that it could roll along with the Astro Trac.
The only thing that makes this toy interesting is the
fact that the mobile pads would mount the three original launchers. The Space probe, the
Rocket Launcher and the Satellite Launcher. Making a mobile armament to be pulled by the
Astro Trac. The platform of the pads had molded in positions for each of these launchers.
This set also came with a "blue" vinyl 40 x
24 inch Moonscape with three "blue" vacuum-formed plastic craters that would
snap in place on the mat.
The usual tradition of sporting two sides with photographs and all other box panels are
the "black", "blue" and "white" line art illustrations.
