I will be listing a large quantity of toys over the next few weeks, some from my personal collection. Please watch my other listings for more tin windup toys and other toy vehicles. This is a 16.5" long all together (9" car & 7.5 trailer) tin windup car and camping trailer that was made by METTOY of Great Britain c.
The car has a nicely lithographed driver inside and this is the deluxe version of the car with sliding roof. The car pulls a camping trailer that also has a sliding sky roof. The clockwork windup mechanism still works well pulling the car across the floor.It appears that the mechanism may have been repaired as a couple of tabs that hold it on are missing and it appears that the tin around the axle on each side was cut out some. This comes in the original box bottom (no lid) that is in rough shape. CONDITION: The car and trailer have some staining and corrosion to the roof of the vehicles. It appears it got damp in storage. The windup mechanism was apparently repaired with the tin cut out a little around the axle on each side (see closeup pic).
