Yonezawa Diapet Cherica diecast cars are not as common as Tomica diecast cars. A mint piece of Diapet Cherica commands around the same price as a vintage made in japan Tomica; sometimes even higher.

This piece of Diapet Cherica Toyota Celica 1600GT as you can see has missing front grille. I bought it at a low price considering it has multiple flaws.

But I still like it for the fact of its scarcity in the diecast world.

The Japan Airlines stickers on the car suggest that the real life version of it might be used as a work-car in the airport and I reckon it to be in the 1970s.

Sometimes, the base can be the most attractive part of a vintage toy. I do like the beautiful fonts and logo printed on the base of this car.

Cheers.
