First edition vintage collectable

This is a rare vintage battery powered early 1960’s Ford Highway Patrol police tin toy car, made by the Taiyo World Toy Company of Japan. The Taiyo logo is litho’d inside the back window. There are many variations and this one originally had a driving mechanism underneath but it is missing and the battery compartment has partially rusted. The bumpers show a little rust but the majority of the body paint is still intact. A lot of style and class in an oversized vintage tin toy. 12 1/2” long overall. No box.

A pair of tin play toys, one a wind up and the other a squeeze-style action toy. They are lithographed tin, probably made by the same company. The pair of wrestlers has a “Made in India” sticker on the underside. Squeezing the U shaped piece under the two wrestlers causes them to rock back and forth. It’s a simple but clever idea. 5 1/2” tall x 3” wide. The chicken has a key to wind it up. Remove the key, set the chicken on a flat surface and he starts hopping. The chicken is 1 1/2” tall x 2” wide. There’s a little paint missing where the two wrestlers rub against each other but they both work great!
