I was trying to find some information about this car and found what was obviously the same model on the CW website. So, now you can compare the two and additional information if you go to http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/85241-old-toy-car?in=1469#comment-352620
I have had mine from new since the early 1950's, a present bought for me by my dad. Even though it has right hand drive, it may , as discussed by others, be from Germany, as my dad travelled there very regularly on business. Mine is proudly on display and my daughter has also always really liked it. It gets a regular dust and polish. I cannot now find the key, although I remember how well it drove both forward and reverse. The pleasure of using the gear selector was a special thrill when I was little. A small section of the rear bumper is broken off but I can't remember how that happened, although I would probably have been mortified at the time.My daughter has pointed out that there appear to be mounts for a windscreen. False memory, perhaps , but I think I do remember fitting this. I can't remember the car ever having a box. My dad, who was a mechanical engineer and loved small details, would, I know, be just so pleased that this beautifully constructed toy is still loved and admired. And, of course, it will never be for sale!
