Asahi Corp. JToys Junior Products, battery operated 1/10 scale Lotus 49 Ford F-1 formula race car, rare winged version in excellent working, like new condition. This toy comes with the original box and instruction insert sheet. This is a beautiful, all original toy with the exception of my new reproduction rear wing. This is car #10.
The toy has been tested and is in perfect working order. It has been in my personal collection for several years and displayed in a glass cabinet with its box. The box is about an 7 on the 1 to 10 scale with a couple of minor tears and creases.
The toy has a few minor playwear imperfections but nothing distressing and is still a superior condition example to display.
The toy has the original injector cover, some oxidation to the metal wheel inserts, which is common but all in all is a really beautiful toy. Engine screams and very bright flashing bulb lights up the center of the engine. An extremely clean and desirable version of the Gold Leaf Racer that is sure to please. An interesting point to note with this version of the Asahi racer’s box description is that it specified the use of “2 D Cell Batteries” for operation, yet the toy actually requires 3 ‘C’ cell batteries. This version also only offers neutral and forward motion whereas the non wing cars offer a neutral, low and high speed transmission.
