This 6” long red plastic 1949 Cadillac made by Lapin was purchased for $5 US from an antique show in the park.

The toy probably sold for 5 or 10 cents from a 1950s dime store... (Remember dime stores?) Its pristine condition is evident in the wheels which show absolutely no wear.  In fact, they still bear the nubs left over from removal from their sprue.  I got a good deal on this one since its current book value is $30-35.  The easy-to-spot Lapin company logo from the toy’s underside is shown at lower right.

Very nice toys and a good buy at $5. Sure looks in new condition to me. Thanks for showing it.
