My pick this week come from the estate of Jonathan Barrow of Los Angeles, California. What a terrific find in this Japanese tin friction car. While the airplanes are cool, this one for me has such great lines. I chose lot number 1265 the Japanese tin friction 1956 Lincoln Futura car. This is like the Munster’s and Batman meet Apollo 11 and Marvin the Martian (ok you can google search images for Marvin now). This toy includes the antennae which is missing more often than not. With its sleek lines, this car of the future would certainly be a status symbol parked in anyone’s garage. How is the estimate only $600-800? A tough toy to find in this condition! Keep hitting the bid button!
