Utterly charming litho tin toy saloon car, made by Joustra of France in the 1950s. Just look at those faces! Has had a full past life - it is missing a wheel and a tail fin, and is fairly rusty, but has great genuine patina! Would make a fantastic display piece. A rare find.

Is marked "Joustra Fabrication Francaise" and "Made in France" on the boot (trunk). Measures 29cm long and weighs 300g. Joustra was established in Strasbourg in 1934; "Jou" from jouets (French for toys) and "stra" from Strasbourg.

The story behind the find: I found this car at the annual braderie/brocante in my old town of Valenciennes, France. I spent a lot of money that day!
