1956 Red Ford Thunderbird by City Cruiser

4 City Cruiser models of long-ago convertibles.

This red Thunderbird is one of four convertibles in this private collection; two are Ford Thunderbirds, and two are Buicks. It would appear that these were all made in the Hong Kong factory for City Cruiser in the earliest years, though I find no indication of their year of production.

They come on a black cardboard hanger with a yellowed and brittle display bubble on each card. That would be one clue that they were made quite a few years ago. These same convertibles can be found for sale now, but in a rectangular box with cellophane windows, and the cars have doors and hoods that open up.

The New Ray company which first made the City Cruiser models still exists and makes a variety of toys and collectors' diecast models in their factory in China. But aside from a few photos it is hard to find anything more about these older vintage models.

I will ship these older cardboard backings with each model, so you, the new owner, will have the names of the other models in this collection.

If you happen to be a long-time collector, you may have more information to share with me.

(I can be persuaded to sell all four of these convertibles for $20 Cdn as a set.)
