It measures 10 inches or 25 centimeters long and it is in complete, working condition. This is a beautiful car in excellent condition and a very hard car to find. The paint is in great shape, bright and glossy with a great surface gloss.
There are a few really small scratches and chips but it is hard to find much wear in this paint. It is completely original; there are no paint touch ups. The chrome trim is in excellent condition, bright and shiny. The tires and hubcaps are in terrific condition and the car works very well with batteries. When I got the car, the body of the car, the driver, paint and chrome were in great shape, virtually untouched and unplayed with.However, the battery case had been badly damaged by leaky late fifties/early sixties batteries and the car didn't work at all. I sent it to those trusty folks at Uncle Al's Toys and the battery case came back completely restored with the battery operation working great. The car takes two D batteries and when turned on, the car does forward, then stops with the light on the back turning on and the driver opens the door. You can see the car in action in photo #12.
The nice part about acquiring a battery operated toy that has had its battery op restored is that you don't have to worry about it working once, then stopping, as is the case with so many finicky battery operated toys.... This is a beautifully designed 58 Corvette in great condition and it is a hard car to find. Questions are welcome and I will be happy to provide additional photos.The item "TIN BATTERY OP 1958 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE CAR DRIVER OPENING DOOR YONEZAWA JAPAN" is in sale since Tuesday, October 04, 2016.
