Triang vintage c late 1950's Minic 2-storey Garage - of hardboard and wood construction, with stone effect front walls, and colour advertising showing the contemporary Minic tinplate clockwork vehicle range. Includes forecourt with 2 x Triang plastic petrol pumps, roof parking area with two interior ramps, opening and closing plastic front door, and clear plastic showroom window.
A good example but not without signs of age. The ramps have some staining as does the roof, and the metal front has aged with odd signs of rust. The window of the showroom has a slight kink in one little spot, and the top and the base of the front door have a small crack (still work fine) However, this is a rare item, and these things do not detract from the reasonable overall condition of the item. The mechanics to the front door work by raising the front metal lever which acts as a pulley to lift open the door and lower a ramp for the cars to drive onto, which then takes them to the upper floor with ease, and mechanically closes the door. The petrol pumps are like new, and complete, and the garage still looks great to add a car collection as a show piece. It has had a clean up and the metal has been lightly clear varnished, as well as the boards to enhance its appearance which is now good, as it was extremely dirty when it arrived after having been in a garage for many years collecting dust. Measures: 48 cm wide
30 cm Deep, 26 cm High. Sold as seen in used played with condition. A version of this range is currently on 1st dibs for a lot more, with a lot less!. https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/more-furniture-collectibles/collectibles-curiosities/toys-dolls/triang-toy-car-garage/id-f_3414662/. #Vintagetoys#toycollecter#toycollectibles#raretoys#toycars#triang#antiquetoys#toygarage#toydisplaying#toydisplaycase
#BeforeAndAfter Since I am finally finished with the inside of the #Garage now that all of the lifts are in, I went ahead and had the painters start on the main part of the outside while we were on vacation this week and last. I went down today and checked it out & couldn't be happier. Looks pretty awesome. They should be finished with the sides by next week. #Progress#ToyGarage#HobbyGarage @rrrawlings @gasmonkeygarage #Dayton#HomeTown
