SCHUCO VINTAGE TIN DUAL CLOCKWORK RADIO CAR 4012 IN RED. WORKING WithORIGINAL BOX

THIS ONE WAS PROUDLY ON DISPLAY IN MY OLD "MAN CAVE" AS THIS WAS/IS ONE OF MY DADS SAMPLE MODELS. A COUPLE OF DECADES AGO, MY DAD WORKED FOR A SMALL TOY DISTRIBUTOR OUT OF NYC. HE REPRESENTED THE SCHUCO LINE AND DID VERY WELL IN DOING SO. I HAVE HAD THIS STASHED AWAY WITH A FEW HUNDRED (TO THOUSANDS) OR SO ADDITIONAL MODELS THAT I HAVE OWNED OR HAVE COLLECTED OVER THE PAST 5 PLUS DECADES. THIS AS WELL AS A FEW OTHER SCHUCO MODELS HAVE BEEN ON DISPLAY IN MY "MAN CAVE" FOR A COUPLE OF DECADES NOW.

ONE OR TWO AT A TIME. IT'S NOW TIME TO OFFER THIS 4012 RADIO UP. THIS 4012 HAS THE CLASSIC SCHUCO BODY (OF WHICH MOST FOLKS REFER TO THIS AS A "BUICK") WHICH IS FOUND ON THE 4002 "TACHO-EXAMICO" (LESS THE ANTENNA HOLE) AND A COUPLE OF OTHER SCHUCO MODELS ACROSS THE BOARD.

THE BODY IS MADE OUT OF PRESSED TIN WITH A NICE TIN LITHOGRAPHY (PAINT) FINISH. HERE IT IS RED IN COLOR. THE INTERIOR IS ALSO RED.

THIS 4012 RADIO IS UNIQUE IN THE SCHUCO WORLD AS YOU ACTUALLY HAVE DUAL (TWO) CLOCKWORK FEATURES. NOT ONLY IS THE DRIVE POWERED VIA CLOCKWORK, BUT, HERE YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL THORENS MUSIC BOX WHICH IS CONTROLLED BY A SMALL LEVER ON THE DASHBOARD AND WOUND UP VIA THE CHASSIS.

SCHUCO AND THORENS (A SWISS COMPANY) TEAMED UP TOGETHER AND OFFERED A VARIETY OF MUSIC TRACKS IN THIS 4012 MODEL. HERE YOU HAVE THE SONG TRACK "AUF WIDERSEHEN" WHICH WHEN THE SMALL LEVER ON THE DASHBOARD IS PUSHED DOWN, IT WILL PLAY THE MUSICAL TRACK. ANOTHER COOL FEATURE IS THAT YOU ALSO HAVE A WORKING EMERGENCY BRAKE WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE COCKPIT ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE. WHEN YOU TWIST THE CHROME HANDLE TOWARDS THE DRIVERS SIDE, THIS WILL LOCK THE REAR WHEELS FROM TURNING, THUS KEEPING THE CAR "PARKED" UNTIL YOU RELEASE IT (BY TURNING THE HANDLE SO IT'S POINTING TO THE REAR). THE STEERING WHEEL DOES TURN BOTH FRONT TIRES IN UNISON AND THE WHITE ANTENNA IS DESIGNED TO BE PULLED UP AND DOWN, GIVING THE IMPRESSION THAT THE MODELS RADIO DOES WORK!

THE BODY OF THIS 4012 IS IN VERY GOOD ORIGINAL SHAPE/CONDITION. YOU DO HAVE A DING ON THE DRIVERS DOOR, JUST TO THE LEFT OF THE OUTSIDE HANDLE. THE FINISH IS 100% ORIGINAL AND IS STARTING TO SHOW SOME CRAZING OF THE FINISH. THIS IS FOUND THROUGHOUT THE MODEL AND IS IN THE FORM OF TINY AND THIN CRACKS, ALSO KNOWN AS SPYDER CRACKS AS THEY LOOK SOMETHING LIKE A SPYDER WEB. UNFORTUNATELY, THESE ARE ONLY TOO COMMON AND OFTEN SHOW UP AFTER A FEW DECADES OF SLOWLY DRYING OUT OVER TIME. OFTEN THESE ARE ATTRIBUTED TO POOR CLEANING PRIOR TO APPLYING THE FINISHING COAT OF PAINT. THE INTERIOR IS IN EXCELLENT ALL AROUND SHAPE/CONDITION AND ORIGINAL TO THIS 4012. THE WINDSHIELD IS ORIGINAL AND PERFECT.

ALL OF THE TIRES ARE STILL PLIABLE AND HAVE NO FLAT SPOTS OR DRY ROT. THE CHASSIS LOOKS TO BE IN EXCELLENT OVERALL SHAPE/CONDITION AS WELL. THE CLOCKWORK DRIVE IS STILL STRONG & FULLY ORIGINAL AND IT HAS DECADES OF USAGE LEFT IN IT!

ALL ONE HAS TO DO IS TO EXERCISE A LITTLE DILIGENCE WHEN IT COMES TO WINDING THIS BABY UP! THE KEY IS IT'S ORIGINAL BROWN KEY AND YOU HAVE A NICE ORIGINAL BOX WHICH HAS A SLIGHT INDENTATION ON THE LID AND A SMALL TEAR ON ONE OF THE SMALLER PANELS.

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL SCHUCO MODEL AND IS NOT A RE-MANUFACTURED MODEL!! THIS MODEL, AS SO HALLMARKED, WAS/IS MADE IN THE U.

ZONE OF GERMANY WHICH EXISTED BETWEEN THE YEARS 1945 1949. THE BOX WAS/IS MADE IN WESTERN GERMANY WHICH TELLS ME THAT THIS MODEL WAS PRODUCED SOMEWHERE AROUND THE END OF THE US ZONE (1949) AND DISTRIBUTED WHEN WESTERN GERMANY CAME INTO PLAY (AFTER 1949). I DO HAVE OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE.

I TEST EVERYTHING PRIOR TO LISTING THEM AND ONCE AGAIN PRIOR TO SENDING THEM OFF. I DO THIS SO WE WILL BOTH BE VERY HAPPY WITH THE END RESULT, IT'S THE ONLY WAY I DO THINGS! THIS VINTAGE, CLOCKWORK , TIN , SCHUCO "RADIO 4012" IS ANOTHER EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF A MODEL AND A TIME THAT HA S PASSED US BY. A GOLD /RATED PSELLER WITH OVER 8 YEARS OF THIS STATUS BACKING ME. I SPECIALIZE IN PRIMARILY THE AUTOMOTIVE FIELD AND I CONCENTRATE WITH/ON PORSCHE, BENTLEY, AUDI AND.

I HAVE A UPS ACCOUNT AND MOST OF MY OFFERINGS HERE SHALL BE SENT THAT WAY. I PACK EACH AND EVERY ITEM MYSELF AND DO SO AS IF I WERE RECEIVING IT. UNFORTUNATELY, IN THE PAST I HAVE HAD A FEW RUN-INS WITH SOME SCRUPULOUS BUYERS, WHO BY THEIR VERY NATURE "DO NOT PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS". I HAVE NO CONTROL OR SAY IN THIS MATTER, SO PLEASE DO NOT FAULT ME FOR THIS ACTION.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS, PLEASE READ THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS SECTION AS THIS MIGHT APPLY TO YOU..... ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT MY PICTURES AS THESE DO BECOME AN IMPORTANT SECTION OF THIS LISTING. WHAT YOU SEE HERE WHICH IS PICTURED, YOU WILL RECEIVE. HERE I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME IN READING ALL OF THE ABOVE.

I WILL BE ADDING TO MY STORE HERE ON A REGULAR BASIS AS IT HAS BECOME A MISSION TO GET UP TO 1000 LISTINGS IN THIS STORE PRIOR TO THE HOLIDAYS.... SO BE SURE TO CHECK ME OUT AGAIN AND OFTEN!

I ALSO HAVE A BUNCH OF COOL VINTAGE ITEMS FROM ALPS, BANDAI, TECHNOFIX, SCHUCO AND OTHERS. TO DO THIS YOU NEED TO LOCATE THAT TINY DOOR NEAR MY SELLERS INFORMATION. THE "SEARCH" BAR WILL FURTHER REFINE YOUR SEARCH (IF NEEDED/DESIRED). TO VIEW JUST MY SCHUCO LISTINGS... NOW JUST MY ACTIVE SCHUCO LISTINGS WILL POP-UP FOR YOUR PERUSAL/CONSIDERATIONS.
