    First timer-Question about brass Cadillac V16 Model Car "Made in India"

    Hi all...I've browsed treasurenet for info before but have to post for the first time because I am stumped!
    I'm not a regular collector in the toy or automotive world, but this item jumped out at me at a flea market. Any info on it is greatly appreciated!

    -It is a brass model car stamped "Cadillac V16 (1931)"...and as you can see in the pics, it was made in India.
    -There is also a "JK" license plate.
    -It measures 7" long, 3" wide and 2" high.

    This is the 1931 version of the V16, and the wheels are plastic. In addition, the stamped ID is very crude. So my thought is that it is some sort of post-50s master for a model car manufacturer. But why would a master have the "Made in India" label?

    There are no other identifiers or manufacturer marks on this. Again, any steering (no pun intended) in the right direction is very much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
