This is a fun vintage "American Girl" style Barbie, bendable leg 1070. She's a medium blonde, her markings are C 1958 / Mattel, Inc / US Patented / US Pat Pend / Made in / Japan. She has her original (damaged) swimsuit, I've given her shoes that closely match the originals, they have numbers under the toes, no country of make, I'm thinking they may not be original, one came with her but there were a lot of later era clothes too! She's not a pristine example by any means. The swimsuit is torn down the front.It's possible it can be made to look better, but it's a pretty significant and obvious split. There's also a tiny tiny hole a few inches to the left. Doll herself has a rough body. Knees bend just fine, not sure how her balance is, but she's got a heavily chewed foot on one foot and is missing the toes altogether on the other. Her legs were a bit grimey, I wiped them down but she could still use a little more bathing. There's a few tiny lines that might be tiny splits just above the ankle of the foot that does have the toes. I don't think they're full cracks but might lead that way. In general the legs are a little loose, but not awful. Her head is pretty good. Not perfect, she does have minor rubbing to the lips and eyelids, but I've certainly seen worse. One area of her hair is flaring out, but I know that can be tamed. Fingernail polish is pretty good, again not perfect. If you want the head, this is a pretty good example.
If you have replacement clothes and can tolerate the feet, even better! Shortcake21 is the owner of Timeless Toy Box, a vintage toy resale business.
