Blikken dubbeldekker trolley bus in goede conditie 1950

1940s WELLS BRIMTOY # 516
DOUBLE DECKER TROLLEY BUS
with Stop/Start Action VNM
SCARCE 1940's WELLS BRIMTOY #516 DOUBLE DECKER TROLLEY BUS
MADE IN GT. BRITAIN BY WELLS BRIMTOY.
THE KEY A STANDARD SQUARE MECHANISM KEY IS MISSING BUT THEY ARE EASILY OBTAINED.
An original and scarce example of a tinplate clockwork London Double Decker Trolley Bus with Stop-Start action manufactured c1940 by Wells Brimtoy prior to their Pocketoy series and originally sold under their Wells 'O' London label.
Modelled as a London Transport vehicle this early production model comes in all red colourway with detailed lithographed tin printing including driver and conductor to the rear platform. Trolley Bus comes in good condition which should be seen from the pics. The original red colour just turned to a kind of orange in course of time.
Advertising boards to the sides 'Wells Brimtoy Distributors Ltd' and 'Look Forward to Further Models'.
Route 516 with destination boards 'Stirling Road - Walthamstow' which was the address of the Brimtoy factory.
Fitted with 4 black plastic wheels and a clockwork drive motor, which comes in good working order. Motor has a stop-start action ie: runs forwards - stops for a while - then automatically starts forwards again and repeats the routine.
Black tinplate poles fitted to the roof.
Vehicle measures some 4.5" (11.4cm) in length.
Overall a super example of this scarce 1950's clockwork driven Wells Brimtoy commercial vehicle.
