This beautiful antique tin friction toy car is pretty big, about 11" long x 4" wide and it is marked "CHEVROLET Sign of Quality'B'(Bandai)" and "Made in Japan" underneath. The car is beautifully formed with really good detail and you can see that it is modeled after an old 1961 Chevrolet Impala.
The car has tin plated bumpers and trim, a plastic steering wheel, and it has "Impala" inset into the side trim pieces. It has a nicely lithographed dashboard and upholstery and both license plates say "Chevrolet".
There is some wear and one hubcap is missing but aside from this the classic Chevy is in very good original condition. The friction engine still runs OK and the car displays very nicely.Nice red color and very unusual! FREE scheduling, supersized images and templates.
