French Dinky 1419, the 1968 Ford Thunderbird. They don't make 1:43 toys like they used to!
I recently took this T-bird out of its box for photos. I popped in a AAA battery and - yes! - the brake lights still work! The toy was arranged to operate the taillights if the rear suspension was pressed down. However, my springs are a little touchy so sometimes the lights stay on. This was made from 1969 until French Dinky ceased production in 1971.
