    I am searching for information on these cars. They have a stamp that says TN japan. I can find a lot of their tin cars, but none like these. Any information will be helpful. Thank you

      Your cars are from the late 1950s, and were sold at five and dime stores such as; woolworths, JJ Newberrys, etc. The price was usually stamped on the cars and they usually sold for 10 cents. They were made in Japan from recycled vegetable cans and if you take them apart you can usually still see the vegetable lithographing on the underside of the tin. They were usually sold as loose bin toys (unboxed).
