1950s Ever Ready Toy Electric Car Austin A70 Made of Early Plastic

This strange looking model is a 1950s Ever Ready Toy Electric Car Austin A70 Made of Early Plastic e.g Casein or perhaps Ivorine.  

It's not in the greatest condition and is being sold as a project for major restoration/ spares/repairs.

There are no obvious makers' marks, but I understand that it was probably made by Palitoy, on behalf of Ever Ready (UK).  Two versions were available, one driven by remote control, and the other by a large boot handle. I think this one is a remote control version. Quite an expensive toy when new, and pretty rare now.

Ever Ready is the company better known for making torches and batteries.

Approximate Size (WHD): 16.8 x 7 x 6.8 cm

It has Aus 70 embossed on the front bumper

  • The body is discoloured and has distorted due to the nature of the delicate plastic used in manufacture.
  • The rear wheels need to be refitted to the drive.
  • Requires 2 x U11 Ever Ready Batteries (not included)
  • The front bumper is loose
  • There is no remote control
  • There are parts missing e.g. the back bumper but I can't specify what else is absent.
  • It comprises an Every Ready (UK) motor which would run off a battery to power the rear wheels.
  • It has not been tested

The model is based on the Austin A70 Hampshire, and later Austin A70 Hereford,  produced by the car manufacturer Austin (UK) from 1948 until 1954.
