Marusan 8504

Marusan 8504 (Japan) Ford Milk Cart. Very near mint/boxed. A rare model using French Dinky castings. From The Berlin Collection.

Price: £350.00

Notes

The Japanese company Marusan is more well-known for tinplate models. However, we have a diecast model uncannily resembling the French Dinky 25O Ford Milk Cart models from this manufacturer. Indeed, we believe this is a casting from the French Dinky model. Finished in light blue and cream, this model will look eerily familiar to Dinky collectors. Tinplate base. Spun wheels. Original treaded tyres.

Couple of negligible marks and a stray flick of factory cream paint on one side.
Distinctive end flap box is bright with a crisp feel. One end still has an intact seal, so never opened. Light wear.
Rare to come to the market place.
This is only the second Marusan model we have ever offered for sale.
