This comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable reference features hundreds of tin toy cars from toy makers around the world. Included are toys from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan, 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 commercial delivery and public service vehicles organized alphabetically by make, as well as hot rods, jalopies, and race cars. A companion volume features passenger, sports, and concept vehicles. With over 1,140 photographs of toys 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!
