Japanese Tinplate Piston Action Space. This example is working, for the most part, the functions ie pistons move up and down and light up the tractor wheels spin, however, the plastic threads are a little loose so the tractor does not move and I assume with replacement threads it will move as the wheels do spin. This example has a very nice finish and almost no typical body dents, major scratches or paint wear, the undercarriage paint is also clean & free from excessive or major wear or scratches.
When I got it there was some typical battery surface rust in the side compartments, (see pic) but the tractor came right on when I put both batteries in the sides. He very rare original box is also included, the box is NOT mint and does not have does show some expected age and storage wear. BATTERY OPERATED, WITH NICELY CONCEALED COMPARTMENTS. RETAINED A NICE BRIGHT APPEARANCE. ROBOT DRIVER IS CORRECT, HE SLOTS INTO POSITION...WITH A FORWARD-STOP-REVERSE LEVER BY HIS RIGHT SIDE. THE ORIGINAL TRACKS HAVE A LITTLE STRETCH/LOOSENESS AS NOTED IN UPPER TEXT. INNER PERSPEX ENGINE WITH MOVING INTERNAL PISTONS..... ALSO HAS A RADIATOR FAN, WHICH I'M GUESSING CAN BE CONNECTED TO ENGINE WITH A MISSING RUBBER BAND MAYBE? I WANT THE LISTING TO BE VERY CLEAR SO YOU ARE A HAPPY CUSTOMER AND AVOID ANY PROBLEMS.
