I added more photos of the car, my apologies for the delay. This is a terrific car but it is not perfect. It measures 12 inches or 30 centimeters long and it is complete except for the window plastic in the back tail gate. (The tailgate is supposed to have a piece of heavy plastic that will move up and down, unfortunately it is no longer in place.) Everything else is intact and in very good, played with condition. The chrome trim is bright and shiny and is very detailed. The paint is in very good shape with some chips and scratches. There is also some minor crazing in the paint, along the sides of the car. ( I have had another black version of this beautiful car some years ago and it was heavily crazed; I wonder if the black paint might be somewhat prone to crazing? The wear on this version is very minor.) The paint is glossy and bright and has a nice surface. There are some tiny touchups, mostly on the top of the car. There are a couple of very tiny dings, one on the hood, near the right headlight. It is so tiny it is hard to see but I am pointing it out in the interest of total disclosure. The tires and hubcaps are very nice and the friction motor works. The window plastic is original. This car has a tremendous level of detail, including the unusual feature of plastic" glass" all the way around the car, with the glass in the passenger areas partially rolled down. It also has a terrific roof rack and back tail gate and a beautifully detailed interior. The ATC 1962 Ford Ranch Wagon is one of the nicest and most beautifully thought out tin cars ever made by great Japanese tin toy makers. This example is not perfect, it has its flaws but but it still looks great. The car is pictured on page 98 of the wonderful Big Book of Tin Toy Cars.Many thanks for looking!
