No reserve for this excellent battery operated 1951 Cadillac 4 door sedan by Marusan Japan. Measures 12 1/2" (31.5 cm) All the headlights and tail lights work (see photos) and the forward and reverse motor works as it should. This has a reproduction box from a very nice original and has been shrink wrapped for protection. This has a nice all original cream yellow body with green/blue top. This color combination was the only one offered for the battery versions. The yellow paint is virtually blemish free, nice and smooth with a great shine. The top is the only area that I would pick, as it does have some scuffs and marks (see top photo). The interior is mint! all the yellow, brown and blue litho is crisp and bright, no rust or fading. Even the front and rear original plastic windows are perfect, no shrinkage or scratches. All 4 hub caps and tires are excellent. The front drivers side tire does have a slight flat spot. (see base plate photo, you can see the flat spot on drivers side front tire). One of the areas that really stands out is the nickel trim! Most of these Marusan have such thin nickel plating that any polishing will rub it off. I have never seen one with this stunning example of brightness. The bumpers, bumper guards and grill are flawless. It really makes this model stand out. The battery compartment is mint, rust free, bright and shiny. The reproduction Battery cover is a real work of art and is hard to tell from the original. This Marusan Cadillac is a real beauty and will enhance any collection.
