Hello,

I have a 1936 Toyota type AB 4-door phaeton Lighter. The model was used as a cigarette carrier and also has a re-fillable lighter built into the car. When you push down on the steering wheel the flame comes up out of the hood.

I just got this from a client at work today... I work at a Toyota dealership. My client told me that this is a very rare piece. I have looked online but was unable to find any similar to this and was just wondering if anyone had any information about its value and a little bit of hstory.

Cheers!

    I normally don't collect tobacco memorabilia but that is too cool. It does'n't look very old but does have a lot of detail for that type of an item.

    Are there any markings on the bottom of the car or on the box?

    Hi @AzTom,

    I uploaded some more pictures of the only markings on the box :)

    thanks!
