Stock# 2221...1949 (possibly 50-51) Dyna Panhard 4-door sedan/ medium dark blue/ stamped metal/ toy wind-up car probably made by CIJ or JEP/ this toy might have been used as a dealer promo in France/ 1:20th scale estimated--measures 7 inches in length/ no opening features/ 90% paint/ nice logo on front/  Paris license plate number/ I do not have a key for this car, but borrowed one once to see if it worked. It works very nicely. The rear of the car sits lower when not wound./ has seen some child's play but no damage other than paint rubs/ kinky little French car with lots of personality and a historical provenance of sorts...$425.  Free US Shipping !

Additional notes: In 1951 Picasso produced a sculpture called "Baboon and Young" using two toy automobiles for the head. A model just like the one shown here is the upper half of the head! The second toy car (not yet identified) is turned upside down and forms the lower jaw portion of the head.

You can own a bit of Picasso, so to speak!

Stock# 2090...1949 Mercury George Barris style chopped and channeled coupe/ unfinished/ heavy pot-metal/ prototype night-light-style lamp privately made for Autohobby in the 1990's/ 1:25th scale. The upper portion lifts out to change the bulb. This lamp was developed from a limited production run of Autohobby Barris inspired customized 49 Mercurys. (See the Lead Sled items offered above.) The wheels are machined aluminum. A grill bar is included. This item is exactly as received many years ago as a proposal for production. It is crude in many ways, but for someone with the right skills, this one-of-a-kind can be made into a quality piece. Time, patience, finesse and voila. Many promos of the late forties and early fifties were made in this style. This one is being offered for much less than original developmental cost and it is one-of-a-kind, no other like it...$165.   Free US Shipping !
