Produced Variants So far, I have seen the Glitter 'n Gold Roadster sold in the following packaging. Since they were all made in the same factories, I don't know if there are any country-of-release related differences or not:
  • US Made in USA.  FM Radio Made in Hong Kong (playset parts featured on this ID page is US issue)

Roadster: 24" long white plastic two-seater vintage-look car with lavender fenders, roof and interior, hot pink er... exhaust pipe thingies, "gold jewel" hubcaps, whitewall tires with black tread, finished with "gold" plastic bumpers and hood ornament.  The windshield is clear dark pink plastic.  The hood opens for storage (who needs a motor?), and there is a real working FM radio in the trunk.  The roof is removable, the doors do not open. 

with FM Radio: Radio and battery are in the trunk of the car.  Notice the Jem license plate!

label sheet: photo needed

instructions: Double sided sheet of white paper, dark blue ink.

Items not listed in Hasbro's box contents - these items are removable and often missing on used Roadsters.
Hard Top roof:  Hot pink plastic with a small clear pink window in the back.
  • Fit's into two holes in the back and clips onto the windshield area.  The clipping action very easily causes a break in the small piece of plastic that it clips to, so be very careful removing it!
Hood ornament: Plastic with a chrome finish of the Jem logo.  
  • It clips into the front end of the hood.  Once in place, it's difficult to remove without breaking.
Steering Wheel: Hot pink, has Jem decal on front (if you're lucky!)

Gear shift: Hot pink.
  • almost always missing on used Roadsters!  It is a separate piece that can be removed.

Box, liner and inserts not previously noted in Hasbro's box contents above.
I don't own this playset NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it.
Box: US issue: Made in USA.  FM Radio Made in Hong Kong
Box inserts: Brown cardboard
