6640 Missile Launcher
The 6640 Missile Launcher car is a one-year-only item from 1960. It is the rarest of all missile launcher cars as it is an uncatalogued item and only available in one set -- # 1805, The Land, Air & Sea Set.
The 6640 is similar to the 6630 and 6650 Missile Launcher cars produced by Lionel in the late 1950s and early 1960s. While the flatcar and missile launching mechanism are structually identical on all three, the only difference is the color of the flatcar and launcher.
Standard features of the 6640 include: olive flatcar with white lettering, AAR trucks with two operating couplers plus a brakestand and brakewheel.
The missile firing superstructure is always olive with a black missile launcher. Original missiles are a two-piece unit and usually found with a mixture of red and white components.
