1955 chevrolet taxi by ichiko

Sold Want to Buy This?

PLEASE READ COMPLETE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY AND VIEW ALL PHOTOS CLOSELY BEFORE BIDDING: 9 ¼” long; yellow and red. There were not many ’55 Chevrolet toys from Japan…this one by Ichiko is probably the best. It is very near mint in a very good original box. This toy has the unique feature of running when a penny is dropped into a slot. The Taxi light works and it tries to run but somewhat sporadically. I am sure with a little WD-40 or electrical spray it would work better. The paint is excellent, with one pin-prick mark on the roof and an even smaller mark on one rear door. The paint on these toys is very thin and easily scratched, but this one shows no play time and is bright and shiny. The litho hubcaps are excellent and the tires show no wear. The original box is very good. The colors are bright and the complete box is very solid. There is a small corner missing but there are no repairs. This is a very pretty car that will display with the best of them. Shipping & Handling: $15 Toy is described to the best of my knowledge and ability. Photos are of the actual item being auctioned. The item is being sold as is; so please ask any questions before auction ends. I am a collector as well. I will not put a toy up for sale that I do not think you would be proud to put up on your shelf. Your item will be securely packaged for a safe journey. I accept no responsibility for the item once it is mailed. Please email any concerns before leaving feedback, and I will do my best to accommodate you. Thanks for looking!
