The overall condition of this awesome toy is very good for its age showing some minor signs of wear and scratching for a toy that is around 70 years old. There is some oxidation to some of the chrome trim parts. All 4 hub caps are present and the tyres are all still in great shape. 

The toy is accompanied by its ULTRA RARE ORIGINAL BOX which is in very good to excellent condition for its age only showing minor wear to ends, corners and sides. It still even has its import sticker. E 6-3 pencil engraving.

Approx. 30cm long.

A truly fantastic example of an incredibly sought after toy & box combo for any serious collector.
