Alps ‘Auto Doggie’ Mustang Convertible Battery Operated Tin Car
This is a wonderful Alps ‘Auto Doggie’ Mustang Convertible Battery Operated Tin Car, made in Japan. The toy is a ‘Bump N’ Go multi directional mover. Auto Doggie is in excellent working condition with the original driver and a replacement dog. (The other dog ran away . . .) When the toy is in play, the car moves about the room and the doggie barks and makes a jumping movement in the passenger seat.
It’s a large toy measuring 14″ long and 5″ wide. It is in excellent working condition and is always in a glass cabinet on display in my collection.
