UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FEDERAL CIRCUIT
February 1, 1985
TOYOTA MOTOR SALES, U.S.A., INC., APPELLANT
THE UNITED STATES, APPELLEE
Appealed from: U.S. Court of International Trade
Before Baldwin, Kashiwa and Nies, Circuit Judges.
NIES, Circuit Judge.
This is an appeal from a judgment of the United States Court of International Trade sustaining the classification of certain cab chassis, imported from Japan from January 1980 to July 1981, under item 692.02 of the Tariff Schedules of the United States (TSUS).
The issues on appeal were thoroughly treated in the trial court's opinion reported at 7 CIT , 585 F. Supp. 649 (1984). Contrary to appellant's argument, Daisy-Heddon, Div. Victor Comptometer Corp. v. United States, 600 F.2d 799 (CCPA 1979) is the most pertinent precedent and leads us also to conclude that the articles in question fall within the scope of item 692.02 (TSUS) as unfinished automobile trucks and not within either item 692.20 (TSUS) as automobile truck chassis or item 692.10 (TSUS) as other automobile trucks. Accordingly, we affirm on the basis of Senior Judge Maletz's opinion.
