Very good condition; works; normal signs of wear for it's age. Some surface level rust here and there. The wind-up mechanism works well in so far as the pieces move. I did not wind it up tight enough to see everything move the way it was designed to; too much risk in braking it. The car does move around the track, the sign by the officer spins as the car goes by and the motorcycle cop does cock back into place ready to be released.Original operation: when wound, the car would travel around the track. Each time it passes the traffic sign it spins reading STOP/GO alternately. After a few times around the sign should spin to STOP. As the the car runs the STOP sign the motorcycle cop is released and the car gets caught or pinched. I did not wind it up tight enough to test this. On the side of the tin (pic #2) you can see the driver in court getting a ticket.
