To me, these are the ultimate tinplate toy cars. If you are waiting to find one of the best SAN Caddys available, look no further.
This stunning piece is clean as new and in very near mint 100% original condition with all parts intact. There is a strong friction motor as well. As an added bonus the beautiful original factory box is included. This is another one owner car that was never played with, only displayed in a case by the adult owner.I bought the car many years ago from his granddaughter. The car is just like new showing no wear at all. The jet black paint is 100% and still has that wet look luster. Anything that may look like a chip is only my lights reflecting off of the glossy black paint. The bare metal trims all shines like chrome void of any tarnish or oxidation. I can't say enough about this exceptional car. The colorful and detailed interior looks just stellar. Plastic windows are crystal clear with no cracks or breaks and still firmly attached. Glossy black chassis is perfect as are the sombrero style hubcaps. Rubber tires are flawless with wear at all and no cracks. The only thing keeping the car from being mint is a minor flat spot on the left front tire. The spiral friction motor runs like new; long, strong and smooth. The colorful factory box is still crisp and clean with no rips, tears or repairs. This is the original box that this car came in. The BLACK factory color stamp shows prominently on one end.
When I bought the car the box lid had some old hand writing on it which I was not crazy about at all. The box was so nice otherwise I had the writing professionally repaired by Anthony Restorations who do outstanding old toy box, book and movie poster repair. The operating instructions are as bright as new on the underside of the lid. There are no offending odors.If you are looking for the very best in a SAN Cadillac toy car with it's amazing original box, this is the one for you.
