This Nikko Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD Mini is in excellent, used condition. The gearbox, working headlights and 4WD transmission are all in perfect working order.

The original box is included and has some wear and tear, but it is still quite presentable. The original manual and transmitter are in excellent condition.

History

The early 1980s was a golden period for Japanese ready-to-run R/C manufacturer Nikko, as they released a range of highly realistic R/C scale models unlike anything you will find today. The Nikko Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD Mini was one of their finest – a 1/16 scale model with fully working 4WD transmission, 2 speed gearbox and working headlights. It was capped off with a great, realistic body shell, cool decal scheme, and very realistic scale tyres. 1982 was definitely the year Nikko first released a 4WD R/C vehicle, and so this one may have been the very first 4WD they manufactured. The “Mini” in this vehicle’s name was simply there to distinguish it from a far larger 1/10 model they had also released. This 1/16 version is still a respectable 29cm in length.
