PLEASE READCOMPLETE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY AND VIEW ALL PHOTOS CLOSELY BEFORE offerDING:
Up for sale is a 12" long tin friction powered 1954 Cadillac Series 62 four door sedan made by Gama of Western Germany in the mid 1950s. The car is very similar in appearance to the Japanese made Marusan 1951 Cadillac although Gama took the liberty of making a few subtle changes so it would reflect the appearance of a 1954 model, such as the grill, vertical windshield/wing window posts, and realistic dual exhaust ports in rear bumper. Thisexampleisvery clean and ingoodcondition with all parts intact. It has a strong friction motor as well.Thejet black finish still has a high luster with only one ding in right front fender. Some roughness in paintcan be seen especially on the roofas well as a bit of spider web effect in places. Chrome trim still shines brightly with some tarnish and oxidation in spots. "Sombrero" style hubcapsall look great. The car is highly detailed with intricate hood and trunk emblems, as well as very realistic tail lights. Correct forCadillac in the1954 year are theheadlight "eyebrows". Interior has outstanding detail including separate steering wheel and actual seat texture to replicate the interior on a real car. Original plastic window glass is crystal clear with no cracks, breaks or shrinkageand still held tightly in place. Glossy gray base showssomewear and spider webbing. All tin connecting tabs are intact and hold chassis tightly to body. German precision engineering is obvious in the spiral geared friction motor. Itseemingly runs forever; long, strong and smooth. Realistically treaded rubber tires are all flawlesswith no cracks or flat spots. Front wheels are steerable in any direction. Avery nicecomplete example of this desirable tinplate car offered here with a low, low starting offer and .....as always.
