1960 Suzuki & Edwards Friction Cadillac Tin Car *sold*
Vintage 1960 Suzuki & Edwards Friction Black Cadillac Tin Car
Here we have a very nicely detailed Cadillac that comes from a Suzuki & Edwards. S&E isn’t one of those very common Japanese toy brands that you’ll come across everyday, however any car collector should probably have one (or two, or three) of them for their shelf.
The realism is pretty good for the period, I’d say comparable but slightly less than the Bandai Autos of the World Series scale models.
Our example is jet black with gold & chrome trim. The interior pairs well against the black with its light blue and grey color scheme, full dash and bench seats.
Tires are in good shape, and rears are hooked to a very healthy friction motor.
The car comes with its original box that has a simple but nice litho’d artwork.
There is some very minor scratching on the body, with some light dings along the edge of the roof. Kept in box with tissue. The box shows some moderate edge wear and a detached side panel.
Measures approx. 9-1/2” Long
