    1953 vet toy????

    hi i forgot to put a measure next to car, it is 7" long x 3"wide x 2.5" tall at roof.
    it seems to be brass, maybe bronze, as it is heavy, weighs about what a can of
    soda weighs. hollow, wheels are alum. im not sure if the paint is original or not,
    i think so as it seems to be on, like baked on.
    the only steel is the plate with the cut out in it , on the bottom, def cut by a die
    purpose unknown. im thinking some kinda mold maybe not toy

    That would be my guess.
    Could you downsize the photos to fit the page?

    Hmm, interesting.
    I think there were only 300 Corvettes built in 1953 (first year), all of them painted white.
    Hope this helps:

    Looks like a bank to me. The missing opening cover contained a lock and slot for coins. I have seen similar models. I'm thinking Bathrico banks or something like that.

    DG39 got it right. Made in 1974 Banthrico Bank from Chicago. Looks like they were a promotion item for varied businesses. This one was from a bank. IT is on EBAY right now ending August 10th.

    Re: 1953 vet toy????

    thanks i had looked on ebay, but under toy and only
    seen the white 53 toy. you say a promo bank in 74.
    i would have thought older too.

    i have a 1987 silver color penny too, i think its made out of,
    the metal a nickle is made of. ill have to scan or pic, and put it up
    in a couple of days, when i have more time.
    thanks for info on car
