INGAP Industria Nazionale Giocattoli Automatica Padova Tin Lithographed Friction Military Tank #455 Italian Toy for Sale


INGAP Industria Nazionale Giocattoli Automatica Padova Tin Lithographed Friction Military Tank #455 Italian Toy

This is a rare tin, lithographed, friction military tank that was manufactured by “INGAP” Industria Nazionale Giocattoli Automatica Padova of Padua, Italy. 

When revved up the tank is supposed to move forward, however, ours does not work as happens with many of these as it cannot grip and gets caught up. The turret is movable. The tank is marked “455” and “GR. 38” on the front and rear of the tank. 

Our example of this INGAP military tank is in all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch ups. This piece shows the usual fading, patina, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. It is approximately 6 ¾” L. We encourage you to peruse our photos to further determine quality and condition.
