We have for sale a really neat estate find. This came from a nice clean non-smoking estate. This is a vintage tin car made by Showa and distributed by Nomura. This is exactly the way we received it out of the estate.
We have not cleaned it or attempted to detail it. We will let an expert like yourself detail and restore as you see fit. The car appears to be complete. I did put a C battery into it and it lights up.
I did have to rotate the battery a little bit, so you might need to have some contacts cleaned up. The Pistons move in and out just like theyre supposed to.The friction part appears to work. I did notice the front tires are a little wobbly. Maybe thats the way they all are, not sure. Nothing really looks like its broke, theyre just a little loose on the axles. This does have a few little paint chips, but thats probably to be expected of a tin vintage toy.
Please keep in mind, this is a vintage toy in vintage condition! Please look at all pictures very closely for details as to style, condition and for measurements.
