To me, these are the ultimate tinplate toy cars. If you are waiting to find the best SAN Caddy 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 as well as the original Ziesels Dept. I bought this stunning car many years ago from the son of the original owner. He said the car had been packed away when his father moved at a young age then forgotten, never played with. The car looks like new showing no wear at all.
Most cars of this color shade are more of a light grey while this stunning beauty is very pale light blue. There are a couple of very small factory touch ups but none of the spider web effect that is always so prevalent on these big cars. The paint still has that wet look luster. The bare metal trims all shines like chrome and the only thing keeping the car from being mint is a very small spot of age tarnish on the right rear passenger door window sill. The colorful and detailed interior really looks amazing.
Plastic windows are crystal clear with no cracks or breaks and still firmly attached. Glossy light blue chassis is just about perfect as are the sombrero style hubcaps. Rubber tires are flawless with no cracks or flat spots.
The spiral friction motor runs like new; long, strong and smooth. The colorful factory box is still fairly crisp and clean with no rips, tears or repairs. The original factory protective tissue is still intact.
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. It would be the highlight of any tinplate toy car collection. I have a similar NMIB Cad in black.
All the same details except color. If interested let me know.
