    I found this car in an old garage I was working in along with some other cars and thought it was pretty cool looking. It is a push and go car but, that is about all I know about it. Can anyone tell me any more about it? It does not say who it is made by just says Ferrari - sign of quality - made in Japan.

      appears late 60s or possibly 70s but that is just a quick guess. the plastic molded bottom shows it's probably not 50s. more research should be able to narrow it down slightly.

      anyway nice looking piece. a british racing green Ferrari, fancy that. paint looks clean, any dents?
    2. brianguy brianguy, 12 years ago
      correction is the bottom plate metal or plastic? I thought plastic but then looked closer and now I'm not sure.

      Its a great piece and looks to be all tin plate. I do find it funny that it is Made in Japan, its British racing green with the Union Jack the flag of the United Kingdom / England and its an Italian Ferrari. Talk about international. Because of the look of it at first I thought it was a Jaguar. Either way I would be glad to display this, its a real conversation piece.

      I see it has a friction motor, does it have a key or just push?
    5. Ted Heidorf, 12 years ago
      It is a push and go friction motor. I have listed it on ebay if interested.

      It is made by Bandai from Japan. My guess is early 60s
