Old O.J. Tin Wind Up Roll Over Race Car Toy

Old O.J. Tin Wind Up Roll Over Race Car Toy

This bulbous, vintage tin race car was made in Occupied Japan and is marked on the side. Half of the car is painted red and the other half is painted green. It has oversized metal wheels that are painted a bluish silver. The strange curved shaft coming out of the end is the original attached key. When wound, the car takes off in one direction then flips itself over, changing from the red side to the green side as it changes direction, then repeats the action. Each time it flips over the driver pops up to face the correct driving direction.

It measures about 4 1/2" long and 2 3/4" across and is in good working condition with minimal wear. The paint shows some minor wear and light scratches but has good gloss.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
