Some promotional toy car for a 1986 event.  "No batteries required"  &  "Produced in 1984...."   This info is obvious, beyond that however, I haven't a clue. I can even determine what language this is. Looked Russian but the phrases can't be translated.

A TRUE MYSTERY!! Razz  Good luck David.

Anyone else?

Russian...hmmm...     I could try again. Only this time I'll go right to the source. My best friend bought a Russian wife years ago. If this is written in Russian...she will know!

Stay tuned!

Am I reading this right, “bought a Russian wife”?

Ok guys...  My friend's wife (who was born & raised in Russia) can make out only a few words. Even she is stumped, therefore, I can go no further. Case closed for me. 😪 

 

Anyone else?  Chav?

Yes Ed, it's true. When one has more money than brains, one can do such things with ease. This is also the guy who has had about 400 cars in his life, including about 250 Mustangs.

The lettering on the car does look like Pan am 86 to me.

As Joe Friday would've said, "Frank has given a lead with some promise but it will require additional leg work to run it down."  Give yourself a star Frank.

Is she really? She must be really young ... I was born in raised in Bulgaria (different language) but at the time the Soviet propaganda was everywhere in the old country.

It is actually very simple. Everything on the car and the box is written in Cyrillic.

Автомобиль = Automobile

Спорт = Sport

Сnорm = Sport

Ралли-86 = Rally-86

авmо = авто = auto

Note that "спорт" (like written on the top of the car) is written with cursive characters on the box: Сnорm = Спорт. Same applies to: авmо = авто
