This is a brand new in box, original Shinsei Wincher 4×4 Toyota HiLux truck from 1985. The truck is mint – never run, complete with box, transmitter, manual and all inserts. Still has that brand new smell! It was lifted out of the box only for the purpose of taking photos. The box itself is superb, and a clear 9 out of 10 with crisp corners and bright colours.

The car features a working motorized winch, working 4WD transmission and working headlights, and all functions are 100% as new.

Nothing beats “brand new” when it comes to vintage R/C toys. Don’t miss this chance to own an extremely rare, brand new Shinsei Wincher 4×4.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.


The Shinsei Wincher 4×4 is a replica Toyota HiLux 4WD, in 1/16 scale. Shinsei was a high quality manufacturer of RC toys in the 1980s and all models were made in Japan. They had perhaps their greatest success in the early 1980s with models such as the Mountain Man and the Dust Runner, and in the mid 1980s they were still manufacturing interesting and high quality R/C toys, and the Wincher 4×4 was a gorgeous and realistic little Toyota pickup with working headlights and a working motorized winch. The Wincher is now one of the more rare Shinsei models today, and examples in any condition are generally few and far between. By the 1990s, the Shinsei RC company disappeared, and their toys are now pretty much consigned to history – but highly recommended if you like high quality, ready to run vintage RC models.
