Futuristic Lincoln 1953 Xl-500 - Friction Toy Car - Made In Japan 50's - 60's For Sale

Futuristic  Lincoln 1953 Xl-500 - Friction Toy Car - Made In Japan 50's - 60's

Up for offers is a rare replica of the Ford Motor Company's experimental design "dream car" model XL-500. The XL-500 offered a glimpse of what was ahead in automotive styling and mechanical features in the early 50's. Designed to accomodate comfortably four adult passengers, the XL-500 had a fiberglass body and an all-glass roof with arched rear fenders which would permit the frame to ride closer to the road. It had three separate bumpers to protect the rear section of the car. The main rear bumper protuded from the body deck, with two other vertical bumpers integrated to each of the tail light assemblies. Arched rear fenders and an all-glass roof supported by graceful supports are exterior features which characterize the experimental XL-500 design. One of the cars distinctive features was the use of pushbuttons selectors for the automatic transmission. They were mounted on the steering wheel hub and this feature became a reality in the 1958 Edsel. The first public apprearance of this model was in the Lincoln-Mercury exhibit at the Chicago Automobile Show in March 14-22, 1953. This toy tin car is a replica of that "dream car".

It has some minor scratches on the plastic dome top, and a small amount of rust on the roof support (you can see in the photos) and some rust on the bumpers. The body of the car is in good shape for it's age. Minor scratchs and scuffs and one tiny spot of rust by the passenger door but it still looks great. The wheels work and it rolls fine. I took alot of pictures so you could see what a wonderful old toy this is. It is approx. 7 inches long and 3 1/2 inches across. The very bottom of the car has "On Deck Convertible XL-500" marked across it but it is very hard to see. I believe it is made in Japan. This is a wonderful old toy that would make a great addition to any toy car collection.
