NIPPON EXPRESS Daihatsu, Large 3-Wheeled Truck by TN Japan
Please SCROLL DOWN for larger, more detailed photos Large Daihatsu 'Nippon Express Co. Ltd.' dump truck made by Nomura in the
late 1950s, early 1960. In real life it was among the larger 3-wheeler trucks
seen on Japanese roads. This rare tin toy version is 10.75 inches
(27 cm) long and has a spring loaded bed that pops up when the red
arrow on the side is pressed, allowing the load to pour out the
back. The overall condition is very good to excellent, with the
hubcaps and original windshield still present. Paint chips and wear
is seen mostly along the cab roof and one of the doors, with some
crazing and scratches to the black undercarriage. Most of the
chrome plating on the trim is gone, and there is some rubber missing
from the inside of one wheel (see photo) but this does not affect
The friction motor catches some of the time, but at present the
vehicle is mostly free-rolling. The working hinged tailgate (at the
very back) is a professionally made, unlettered replacement. The
Japanese lettering on the sides is for the most part excellent and this, along with its dynamic color, makes for a very
striking toy. Today, it is one of the hardest to find and most desirable three-wheeler
trucks to have come off the Japanese toy assembly line.PLEASE NOTE: The first photo is probably the closes match to the toy. By comparison, most of the others are a little bit too pink or orange.
