Vintage tin friction 1950's Buick LeSabre concept car made by Yonezawa of Japan. The car measures 8 inches or 20 centimeters long.
This tin friction car was based on a General Motors Buick LeSabre concept car that was introduced in 1951. Wikipedia calls it "Possibly the most important show car of the 1950's". It introduced aircraft inspired elements to the design of cars; by the end of the decade those elements became the standard for the Detroit car.
The Japanese tin friction version is a terrific likeness and captures the sweeping design of the original. The body of the car is completely original and in pretty good shape with some Very Minor Dings & Rust On Side Chrome Trim.
Dusty & Dirty From Sitting On Shelf For Yrs. The Motor Works But Loose On Bottom.. The interior is Very Nice.The base is in Good condition , Paint Lose The friction motor is the older horizontal, silent kind. The whole car is pictured on page 217 of the great Big Book of Tin Toy Cars. Look At Pictures , Not A Toy Expert? I Have Had This For 15 Yrs & Looks Very Cool In Display , When Its Turned To The Good Side Looks Way Cool!
