Made in Japan by Linemar. 6 1/4 high tin windup toy is in good condition. The windup mechanism is in working order. Popeye moves with a skating motion.
The rubber on both drive wheels is mostly gone so to work properly the drive wheels needs to be replaced. They are available from Tin Toy Works in Allentown PA. The toy has light soiling. The pants are pretty worn and have a small hole in the back of one leg.
On the positive side the litho color is good and the pipe and pants are original.
