Comments:

As one of the ten Shell promos, the Rocket Bye Baby underwent casting modifications that make it quite different from the 1971
casting of the same name.



The side vents were cast shut and the tail pipe mechanism was omitted entirely replaced by a new design for the rear.

The Shell Rocket Bye Baby has been found in a standard 1973 blister Pack, very rare.
