This tin toy is from my sister's collection. She and her husband were both police officers and they had a nice selection of police memorabilia. Unfortunately, she had to scale down her collection, because her husband has Alzheimers and they had to move to be closer to relatives. When I received the toy, I took it apart to inspect the motor and cogs. The motor was working, but was making a squealing noise. I cleaned the exterior of the motor and cogs and lubricated everything with 3-N-1 oil.

The motor runs well without any unusual noise. The red flashing light was flashing intermittently, but not in a regular rhythm. I cleaned the contacts and now it flashes as designed. The body had several places of paint loss and nicks and scratches.

I cleaned the entire metal exterior with rubbing compound and touched up the affected areas with matching paint. On close inspection you can see the areas that were painted but are difficult to see at a distance of 2 feet. It was missing the battery cover, and I made a replacement. It isn't OEM but works well in keeping the batteries in place.

I fabricated a new radio antennae, because the original one was missing. It is glued in place. The switch on the side was broken off and it was difficult to turn the toy on and off. I epoxied an extension on to it and now it is easy to reach. Although the toy is in good working condition, it is missing several pieces. The car works and moves around as designed, but it may not move as well as it did when new. Please, refer to the pictures for an accurate depiction of the toy.
