01-D Radicon Remote controlled Bus This toy is known as the WORLDS FIRST Radio Remote Controlled toy. It was made in Japan during the mid 1950s.
Comes complete with operators instruction booklet, original box, hand-held remote, and both antenna's. I placed batteries in it for testing. It does run but not as it should. The hand held remote does operate as it should, but seems the bus radio "receiver" is not operating correctly. When the bus is turned on it automatically runs through all it's functions on it's own. Goes forward, turns left & right, stops then starts the process all over again. I don't believe it would take much to repair it. I will leave that up to it's new owner. Bus cosmetic condition is a 9 the remote is in 8.5 condition. Box condition is 9.

Battery powered
Bus Measures 14 inches long.
