RARE Vintage 1950's Tin Litho Friction #32 Race Car - Sanei (AAA) Made in Japan

RARE Vintage 1950's Tin Lithographed Friction #32 Race Car manufactured by Sanei (AAA) Japan as shown on the tail section. The friction race car measures 8 1/2" in length. It has terrific brightly lithographed details and features a long side exhaust pipe that when racing across the floor sends out a sparkling action viewable thru the plastic windows behind the driver . Please notice the photo with the friction section removed showing how it operates and that it needs a new flint for continued sparking. The celluloid windshield is in excellent condition with no cracks or creasing. Over the years the child has lost the front grill cover and two rear wheel covers which could be replaced. All in all,this classic long nosed Indy style racer is in great restoreable condition and with a little attention will make an outstanding addition for someone's collection of vintage tin litho toys........
