Hi and welcome to my auction.
Here I have a Tamiya 1:10 Scale, TA-02 Chassis, and 2 Escort Cosworth Shells.
Recently I stripped the car back to a pile of bits, cleaned each piece, checking for wear/breakages and put it back together, re-greasing both gearbox's and differentials. 
When I put it back together, I fitted ball race bearings ( ABEC9 ) a Electronic Speed Controller and 15T High Torque motor.
The chassis is fitted with a Acoms servo for the steering and a Acoms 27Mhz 2 Channel receiver complete with a matching pair of X-Tal's.
The 2 shells that are included have seen much better days, but both are original genuine Tamiya Shells.
The box is complete and usable but is damaged from signs of wear.
This is Almost ready to run, all you will need is a battery and transmitter. 
I dont have a paper manual for this, but I do have a copy I downloaded from a Tamiya Forum that I can email to you if you wish.
So, to sum up;
Good Points:....... Recent full stripdown, clean and reconstruction
 Fully regreased
 Fully Ballraced using ABEC9 bearings
 Electronic Speed Controller fitted
 15T High Torque Motor Fitted
Bad Points:.......... Both shells damaged/cracked but still usable
 No Transmitter
 No Battery or Charger
 No Paper Manual
 Box is damaged
Reason for sale, is the mrs says I have to many hobbies!! :/
