My second ever Barbie "restoration," and my very first "real vintage" Barbie. It hardly counts, as she cleaned up so easily, it was almost scary. I had a blast! I'm totally going to be stalking yard sales now.
For ID purposes--maybe you, dear readers, can help:
- She has "Mattel 1974 Taiwan" (or possibly 1971) printed on the inside rim of her head.
- No pull tab on her back torso, so unless she's been rebodied, I don't think she's the Free Movin' PJ (1975), though she looks a lot like her.
- Her hair curls easily, but it doesn't feel very wiry, even though she also looks like a Quick Curl Deluxe PJ from 1975.
Oh yes, and her before photo here:
