1950s Bandai Tin Litho Friction Mazda Three Wheel Truck - Japan - Very Rare For Sale
Rare toy alert!! Listed here is the very rare 1950s tin friction toy from Bandai called the Mazda ‘Three Wheel Truck’. This is in Carter’s book of rare toys. Even at the very best toy sales, you will seldom see this item. Another example of this toy was listed for $3,800 (that one had its box). Collectors should find my low starting price and more appealing. What a find you have just made!
Approx. 9”long x 3.5” wide x 4” tall
Theoverall condition is very good. The friction motor works perfectly and nothing is missing or broken on the toy. There are some small spots of surface oxidation in the bed of the pickup, around the fender, and on the rear. Other than these few small spots of oxidation, none of the litho is missing.There is some slight discoloration to the ‘chrome’ moldings around the windshield, headlights, fender, etc. The‘chrome’ molding around the windshield has a slight bend (hardlynoticeable). There is mild discoloration throughout commensurate with its age. I have tried to capture everything in the pictures so please take a look at those. The windshield fine but a littledusty. The inside of the cab is fine but dusty. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I will reply ASAP.
