Synopsis

This comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable reference features hundreds of tin toy cars from toy makers around the world. Included are toys from Argentina, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. The toys represent cars of the 1900s to the 1970s, with a major emphasis on toys produced in Japan during the 1950s and 1960s -- the peak period for toy cars made from tin. Showcased are private passenger and sports cars organized alphabetically by make, as well as concept or dream vehicles and boxed car and trailer sets. A companion volume features commercial and racing vehicles. With over 1100 photographs of toys based on real vehicles and detailed information not previously published, this is the most complete work in the field. Each listing contains the make, model, year, body style, size, graphic markings, operation description, producing company, country of origin, trademarks, a scarcity rating, and current values based on condition. Many photos feature the original boxes. A list of the toy companies and their respective marks rounds out this valuable collector's guide. Return to your childhood with this delightful look at colorful toy cars produced in tin!
