Stock# 2003...This tin car has features of both 52 and 53 Buicks. It was made by Marusan and measures 8.5 inches in length. It is a "four-holer" four-door sedan. It has battery operated features which do not work; however the battery box is exceptionally clean. This toy has the appearance of never being played with by children and the paint is around 99% present with good gloss. The roof finish has been slightly damaged by paper sticking to it while in storage. The chrome trim has a gold anodized look with some rub but no rust. This car looks better in natural light than the picture suggests. The wheel covers are the nicest I've seen on any tin toy ever and the car has a neat, artistic charm about it...$295.     Free US Shipping !
