Another rare and beautiful tin car by ATC with the original box. This beautifully styled Toyopet Crown 1900 Deluxe measures approximately 9.25" long (23.5 cm) by 3 tall (7.6 cm) and 3.75" wide (9.5 cm). This car is very hard to find and is absolutely beautiful and highly detailed as well.
The brilliant metallic turquoise paint is highlighted with detailed tin trim and is. The colorful lithographed interior is exceptional and coordinates beautifully with the metallic color. The hubcaps and whitewall tires are very nice and add great eye appeal to the car. The car features very detailed tin trim bumpers, grill and side trim along with tin headlamps, tail lamps and fender-mounted rear view mirrors, the mirrors may have been replaced at some time in the past. The celluloid windows are very nice and all original, and the friction works, as it should.
The base plate is original as well. The roof of the car does have some minor box rubs and one spot of missing paint in the center of a box rub. The original box is very nice and fairly crisp.Ron Smith and William C. Gallagher's "The Big Book of Tin Toy Cars" rates this car an 8 in terms of rarity, with a very high dollar value. Please note minor surface rust on the hood ornament and the front bumper guard. I do believe that both would clean up properly.
