Bandai Triumph TR4



Bandai Triumph TR4, Japan, 1960s, lithographed tin, friction drive.

Bandai is the undisputed king of postwar Japanese vehicle toy manufacture, having marketed literally thousands of variants through the early 1970s.

This left-hand drive version of the TR4 was obviously destined for American markets, where Bandai thrived for decades.
