CRAGSTAN TIN TOY RCA NBC BATTERY OPERATED MOBILE COLOR TV TRUCK VAN. Appears to be all original. Has some wear, scratches, patina, etc. This wonderful tv van runs on 2 D batteries and absolutely works!
The screen lights up, the scrolling scene scrolls, and the drive wheels turn. The scrolling scene is one with what appears to be a cowboy and a circus scene. The other lever controls whether the wheels drive the van at the same time as the scrolling tv. There is also a less obvious lever at the front that controls steering angle. The battery connection is naturally a little finicky since it's such an old toy but I discovered that a few small pieces of wood strategically placed between the battery door and the battery solve that issue and make it run great.
I'll include these pieces of wood for your use. Don't worry, they are not affixed to the toy in any way and are not visible from the outside of the toy.
