This is a large tin model, about 12" long, made in the late 1960's or early 1970's by Bandai. I would say it's loosely based on the 1966 Lotus Ford Indy car. Well bought at $12 on ebay! All it needed was a serious cleaning and a minor repair on a loose ground wire on the motor. I was happily surprised to find near flawless paint under a lot of grime. It works beautifully, with "bump and go" action. It drives forward until it hits an object, goes into reverse and steers either left or right, until it hits an object, then goes back into forward and drives straight. It's quite loud!
