It dates from the 1930's. It measures 15.75 inches long (400mm). It is in very good, original condition, with a very nice patina to it. Some scratching and surface rust.As you can see from the photos, it is missing a wheel. They are rubber wheels, with aluminium discs. The discs are in superb condition. The rubber has gone hard and is very brittle. Also, the front axle is missing. (I just stuck in a piece of dowel, so I could show how it should look). The tinplate flags on the side and "MG" logo on the front are all in very good condition.
The clockwork mechanism works fine. This is a very nice, and very rare toy. I think it would be a very easy restoration!!
