1984 JMC Racing Darrell Young

Factory ship date was 3/27/1985 Shipped to- HOT WHEELS UK Factory color- WHITE The 585th DY produced The 34th white DY made (out of 42-I believe)

This is a true original finish NOS frame that I purchased from Richie Haney. Whom bought it directly from Jim Melton himself when Richie and Jeff bought the JMC stock many years ago.  I spoke with Jim on this and asked him how or why he would have this particular frame set back if it were shipped out in 85. His only response was that either the frame was ordered from the UK, but for some strange reason never shipped. Or it was shipped but was returned due to it being the wrong frameset  or warranty repair.  I sent him over 40 pics from every angle and every possible detail to confirm the og paint was in fact his doing. Which he confirmed. As did several other collector friends that inspected it. He pointed out that the bubbling paint (didnt bond properly) around the brake bridge hole could have possibly been the reason it was returned. He also believes that this was one of the original white frame/white fork sets. And it was possible that the buyer didnt return the fork if the frame was needing a warranty repair. So Jim supplied a different fork
