1954 Studebaker Tin Litho Friction Car, Japan Miyazawa

$116.00 $145.00

Great looking early Japanese tin litho toy car with great subject matter 1954 Studebaker. Especially fine detail on the interior and dash. The rear left tire's "time melted,"so it's flat on the bottom -- basically the same thing that would happen to the real thing if you left it sitting on the same tires for 60 years. But it can be replaced. The other three are fine, and the mechanisms should work fine because the windshield wipers click just fine. The glass is clean (please note, the rear and side glass is not missing, it only came with the front windshield), and the interior is really awesome. Paint and playwear otherwise as noted, see the pictures and ask questions please.

Made by Miyazawa Model Co., Japan

9"x3"

According to "The Big Book of Tin Toy Cars" this Studebaker is rated at a Scarcity 6 out of 10. Values at C6-C8 $225 - $325, C10 Mint $450.

Ken not included, but he is swank!
