From my private collection, this awesome friction toy dates to the early 1960s I believe. I've had it for about 20 yrs and have never before offered it for sale. It measures about 9" by 3.5" and is signed under the back windshield "MADE IN JAPAN" and "CRAGSTAN". On the bottom in raised lettering, it says "FORD FALCON". A classic!<br><br>
The car is a nice blue tin and has excellent realistic details. It's been gently played with and has some minimal scratches. No dings or dents, however, the friction mechanism still works and makes the nice roaring sound.
A rare and wonderful collectible, Cragstan is a well sought after maker of Robot, automobile, and other finely detailed tin toys.
