Vintage Linemar Japanese Gold Tin Lithographed Space Style Friction Car for Sale
Vintage Linemar Japanese Gold Tin Lithographed Space Style Friction Car
Our humble tin friction car is a well sculpted finned space car by Linemar of Japan. It features a good looking fin and chrome set of accessories. The silver fins remind us of a pair of space rocket fins and the taillights of fire breathing rockets.
The gold has a great depth and gold flakes in lithos. This piece is in great all original condition with no restorations, repairs, or touch ups. The lithos are in good overall with the usual patina, scratches, scuffs and chips that are seen with age and play. The bottom is clean and bears the Linemar trademark and”Japan” stamped twice. The wheels are made of rubber and are still attached. The friction works but does require a push. The whole toy is approximately 6” in length. We encourage you to examine the photographs to further determine condition and quality.
