I'm selling a two tone 1952 Oldsmobile fat car convertible made by Ichiko/ Yonezawa of Japan. The car measures 11 inches or 28 centimters long and is complete and all original. The car is in decent/good all original, played wtih condition.  It is much harder to find the early two toned versions of early Ichiko cars; the single colored cars are much more common. The paint is a shiny and bright with some rough areas, mostly around the trunk area of the car. There are also some scratches and chips in the paint. The chrome trim is shiny and very nice with some areas of darkening and a few spots of corrosion, particularly on the grill and the back bumper.. The original hubcaps are all present and in good condition; two of the tire have flat spots. The friction motor does not work. This car is a long way from perfect but it has a lot of character and a lot of charm. These very early fifties cars helped shape the better known classic tin vehicles of the 1950's; they bridged the gap between the smaller, more crude tin cars of the Occupied Japan period and the beautifully designed and manufactured tin cars from the middle and late fifties. The convertible version is shown on page 160 of the great  Big Book of Tin Toy Cars.  I am also selling a large tin friction Nomura Cadillac this week; please check it out..Questions are welcome and I will be happy to provide additional photos. Shipping will be 9.50 in the U.S.; overseas shipping will vary by country and method of shipping. I am always happy to combine shipping. Paypal is preferred for payment and within 3 days of end of auction, please. Thanks!
