Another big Japanese tin car by IY-Marusan. This beautifully restored 1960 Ford Starliner 2 door hardtop measures approximately 11.5" long (29.2 cm) by 3.25 tall (8.3 cm) and 4.25" wide (10.8 cm). This is a hard to find car and it looks terrific, particularly in this orange roof over black body combination.
Twelve years ago Ron Smith & William C. Gallagher rated this car an 8 in the " The Big Book of Tin Toy Cars", with a very high dollar value. The colorful, lithographed cream and orange interior coordinates beautifully with the rich orange and black color. The car has been restored at some time in the past and the paint is outstanding. All of the tin trim including bumpers, grill, windshield trim and hubcaps are in very nice condition.The celluloid in the windows is nice as well. The rubber wheels are like new and the hubcaps are very nice. The base plate or course has been repainted and in excellent condition.
