TN Japan U.S. Air Force Tin-Litho Car

Now here's a nifty little car from the Japanese firm of TN from the 1960s, and I do mean little measuring only 3.5" (8.9cm) L x 1 9/16" (4cm) W x 1" (2.5cm) H. I have seen these on eBay in their original packaging which was just a simple clear plastic bag with a header card. They are generally readily available and often times in fairly good shape but usually without the original packaging. The car itself represents a squad car of the type used  by what was then referred to as the Air Police (they are now referred to as the Security Forces). It is of course a caricature and not a totally accurate representation because it is, after all, a toy and a small one at that. Enjoy!
