It is fully working with the lighted engine working. It is bump and go action, sometimes when you hold it with the bottom facing you it stops then a tap gets it going but, when it's on a surface it works all the time.
The mystery action rubber wheels are slick due to age, it doesn't move that well on a slick surface because of that. I have a piece of hard rubber that has a nice grip, when I put it on that it takes off.Has the tin driver with head that goes around by design. Has the hubcaps windshield and headlights. No cracks to the plastic parts on top of the engine. They call the engine lights "Electronic Bolt Beamed Movement".
Made by Nomura Japan measures approximately 7.25 (18.4 cm) long 3.75 wide (9.5 cm) and 4.5 (11.4 cm) tall. I think it is supposed to be a 1930's Ford.
