I purchased this Japanese 1950's or 60's "Moon Car" several years ago. It is battery operated and was made by Nomura in Japan. Unfortunately it doesn't work. I was going to have it restored but the cost was $1,500.00 to $2,500.00 or more depending on the level of restoration by a pro. Still, it is cool even in its current, and likely to remain that way, condition. At least now it is out of a damp garage and in an air-conditioned home.

    Cool! Here's a toy catalog page photo that shows your Moon Space Ship -

    One sold at Christies, 2005, with box, for $2,472 --

    MsDowAntiques, you are a keen observer! The catalog page photo is terrific. I hadn't seen it before. If only my moon car was minty with the box - good grief check out this link - Thank You so much for taking time to share your research.

    Hi Dave -- wow-- that MOON PATROL car sold on ebay for $12,000! It is awesome -- I love the little planet/globe -- and it had the box, and the astronaut/driver. It is amazing the variations they made with the same basic car/body.

    This is incredible and I can definitely see why the high price tag. Now, someone needs to repro it somehow! :)
