Lionel #3665 Minute Man Car

Does anyone know if Lionel REPRODUCED the #3665 Minute Man in later years? Maybe in the PWC Series? I'm looking to buy one now on E-Bay and I'm being told that it's a Reproduction?
Thanks!

Yes, they did indeed make a re-run of the Minute Man boxcar with the hidden missile. I had one some time back, but I sold it several years ago. Mine was the later series, I don't recall the product number.

Here's the PDF of the instruction manual of the re-issue, but I don't know the actual number: http://www.lionel.com/media/serviced...2-6762-250.pdf

Thank you. Do you remember about what year it was that you purchased it? This may help in my research.

I bought it used, so that probably won't help. The date on that book is 2002 if that helps.

If you have the time you can view the old Lionel catalogs at the Lionel site.

Lionel sells the Minuteman car now in the reproduction Navy X-628 set, part number 6-38353. I've only seen it sold individually from broken up sets like this listing on eBay.
