The car measures 9 inches or 23 centimeters long and it is in very good, played with, original condition.. The colors are bright and the litho is in excellent condition for the most part.
There are some small scratches in the paint. There is a little darkening here and there and a tiny bit of touch up paint on the front grill of the car. The roof has a little crazing in the paint, nothing serious and the original windshields are in excellent condition with no cracks or breaks. The tires and hubcaps are in good condition and the friction motor works well. This is a very nice version of a classic fire chief car made by that great 50's tin toy maker Nomura.
The last photo shows the car as pictured on page 67 of the great Big Book of Tin Toy Cars Commercial and Racing Vehicles. Questions are welcome and I will be happy to provide additional photos.
