The Mercedes Benz race car measures 9 1/2 inches or a little over 24 centimeters long. It is complete and original except for the plastic in the windshield, which is a nice replacement.The racer is in excellent condition with bright vivid paint and a very nice surface gloss. The chrome trim is bright and shiny. There are a few scratches and chips but overall the racer is in terrific condition. The tires and hubcaps are in good condition with very little wear and the friction motor works.
This racer was made in a silver color also and I have always found that the green color is harder to find. The car is pictured on page 198 of the great Big Book of Tin Toy Cars Commercial and Racing Vehicles.
