Thank you for your interest. This car is top of the line you will be proud to display and own this car. Out of all my American Japanese manufactured tin cars this one is my favorite. Even though the actual Edsel car got a bad rap as far as dependability the physical car design itself was and has been noted as one of the top design in the car industry. I cannot brag enough about this tin toy Edsel manufactured by the Haji in Japan in the 1950s.
It really looks like the life size Edsel. The Japanese did a wonderful job replicating the American cars of the times.
