(Nomura, c.1960s) An exceedingly rare vintage tin lithographic Space Patrol electronic car. Based on a convertible Volkswagen Beatle, a slider switch on the bottom of the vehicle turns on the lights, motor sound, and activates the rear wheels. The electronics have been tested and are in working order. Bold and colorful sci-fi graphics make the Space Patrol car one of the most desirable toys inspired by the 1960s Space Race craze. Working examples with the original box only seldom come up for sale. The car measures 12.25" long and the original box is 5"x13.75" and 5.75" deep. The car is in fine condition with only minor wear. The box is in good condition with some edge and corner wear, surface marring, and stress lines.
