Large Yonezawa 18” 1960 Cadillac Police Patrol Car. Must See Nice No Reserve For Sale
From a smoke-free environment, this sale is for a vintage 1960 Cadillac police patrol 4-door hardtop tin car. Made in Japan around the early 60s by Yonezawa it’s 18” long (46 cm). This is a non-working battery operated toy. I’ve owned this toy for over 20 years. This 50+ year old toy appears to be hardly played. Litho is still bright and colorful. Body has no dents and only very superficial scratches/scuffs. Is in very nice condition with no missing parts with the exception of a small tire on the rotationg baseplate mechanism. It even has the often missing original key in trunk that even has an embossed Cadillac crest. It also has the original big loop antenna. Dome on roof is perfect, no cracks or scratches. Roof side lights intact with perfect Red lenses. Colorful bright lithoed detailed interior with big plastic steering wheel. Original Blue tinted front and rear windows with no cracks or scratches. Front grill area is very, very nice with no ageing color or rust. Plastic headlights are there, no cracks. Same goes for rear bumper/tailight assembly. Red plastic bumper lenses are present and intact. Tailight lens are perfect, and fins have absolutely no dents. Gold cowl trim on hood has a little discoloration in one spot but still looks wonderful. All exterior window trim is present and in nice condition and no rust. All side trim is super condition with no dents or discoloration. Door handles are all present. One of the fender sirens does have a little surface rust around the front area behind the crimp. It’s been there since I have owned this toy. Rubber tires (no flat spots and still have tread) and wheel covers look brand new for being as old as they are. Base is super clean. As I said before the battery operated mechanism is not working, so the key that is supposed to turn this on does not work. Key turns but nothing happens. There has been repair to the battery box lid. It was repaired and repainted. There is surface rust inside battery box area which is shown in pics. It’s been there as long as I have had this car. Overall, the base is still glossy with no typical scratches. Be sure to see the pics I have shown. This is a wonderful, rare toy car which you may not see for a long time, if at all, so step up.
