hi there you are bidding on an original Tamco VW Soundwagon, (1984-5) NEW OLD STOCK
History; Originally purchased by my uncle in 1985, they were sold through various magazines (guild etc.) as a early sideline to his are whats left of the very last of the single batch he purchased. Now after 25 years they have resurfaced in a garage clean up by my grandfather. These toys were found in there original cartonwhichstill bares the shipping order too a united states toy importer, so i can only assume oncemanufacturedin japan they were shipped to america, before the shape of the original split windscreen combi, this record player, is verydifferent. It runs on a single 9volt battery, and has a stylus on the bottom. so when placed on a record and the arial (on/off swith) is placed in the up position it will run around the record, onprotectiverubber coated wheels, playing music through a speaker on the top of the van.
This unusual musical toy comes complete withoriginalbox and instructions. The stylus is still covered by original packaging, which has never been removed.
