Check out this ebay car!!

Was surfing ebay and wondered if any of you guys had seen this car? Looks like a 123 to me. What do you guys think?

Could be but the grill looks vaguely familar. So does the tail end.

I've had 123 pedal cars before. Ever seen one of them? They're pretty true to form.

Cheers,

Bill

It's made to represent a Mercedes, for sure.

Old tin windup toys and their friction driven kind, Japan made, are highly sought by some collectors who will shell out hundreds for mint examples of the rarer models. they were all sold for under a dollar in the 1960's and late '50's.

looks like a mid 70's british Ford with a W116 or W123 front end... Soviet cars like the Lada and Volga look more like dressed up and lengthened Volvo 240's and 940's to me.... but i guess it does resemble the Gaz/Volga 31107, google it!

But look at the grill and hood. Looks 123-ish to me. Especially the grill and the hood lines.

The overall lines of the body are kind of 116-ish.

Cheers,

Bill
