Never before on the market until now! Made by "Modern Toys" in Japan - mid 1950's - red tin with interior litho details - celluloid back and front windshield and of course...The ULTRA SCARCE original box... YOU SET THE FINAL PRICE SIZE: the car is 14 1/2 inches long Condition: VERY GOOD... Likely one of the best known examples you will be able to find...
This said - we will be ULTRA picky in out condition report - I was told that this was NEVER PLAYED WITH... And the condition attests to this.Car: No dents and or repairs - minor factory paint streak on the top - look close at images I mention this for accuracy only - both the front and rear windshields, while original - have shrunk and snapped some due to heat - there is one minor interior edge area where the lithograph on the inside is peeling near the interior door top see image - I again and being picky... The tires are good and this DOES WORK VERY WELL!
Box: While original - is in as-found shape - rare enough to have this original box - but it has issues - side crushing denting, etc. By the simple nature of what we sell; estate, old and used items, antiques and collectibles, etc. Normal wear and considerable "age usage" should be expected on items unless otherwise specifically stated in our description as i.
