Marusan Bulldog Tinplate Ambulance Toy
Vintage 1950's Japan Marusan Bulldog Tinplate Ambulance Toy Vehicle #587
This is a vintage 1950's tinplate toy made by Marusan Bulldog Toy Japan. Yet another consignment from the original owner, it was his toy as a child and is in excellent condition. This is not a friction toy, just a free-rolling vehicle, with opening rear doors. This beautiful toy would make a great addition to any collection, and makes a great display piece. The truck measures 12" long x 4¾" wide x 5" tall. Buy with confidence, ships insured to all 50 states!
CONDITION: This is on consignment from the original owner, it was his toy as a child and is in very good condition. All original, no restoration. White enamel has turned to a very light cream color, but still retains its shine. There are some scuffs to the paint here and there. No rust to the body or bottom side, just some corrosion to the front emblem and rear chrome parts. Front bumper is in excellent shape and still shines.. The rubber tires have no cracks or rot, and the rear doors open and close very smoothly. Though showing some surface corrosion, the latching mechanism moves freely. There appear to be several variations of this vehicle, most show a windshield and steering wheel. This one has neither, but I really don't see where a wheel would have attached, so do not believe this model came with one. No writing, no coloring, no stamps, no stickers, and no tape. Actual pictures shown, please view the photos and judge for yourself.
