Haji Wreck Car with Friction Motor—near mint in box

From one of those great Japanese companies of the 50's and 60's here is a truck will look great on your toy shelf. And it's functional too. Install the towing wench, and it rotates side to side. There is a locking clutch on the chain windup, so the chain can be pulled out and then wound up. Attach it to your best looking car waiting for that illusive part, and you have a heck of a display.

Dimensions: 8 inches long; 3 inches wide; 5 inches high at the top of the wench.

Condition: We don't believe the toy was ever played with. We had a little trouble getting the wench mounted because it doesn't look like it was ever installed. There are some scratches under the wench where it looks like someone tried to install the wench or it could just be wear from the wench being stored against the rest of the vehicle. There are a few wear spots on the green paint which look like storage marks from the box. The front of the wench has some yellow paint that is cracking from the bend of the metal. It's just the way the toy was made.

The box is in very nice condition: just some of the usual creases and storage wear. There is a spot on the bottom of the box that looks like there may have been a price sticker at one time.

Nice toy. And you can probably see a good way to display it too.
