Unfortunately, someone took out the engine. Dug it today on an early site. But did I find an early button or coin...no. Found three minies nearby this week. So not all is lost. Let me know if you know anything about this type car. It is hollow.

I found one on Ebay. Not buying it though. 1930's police cruiser, American made. I think its the oldest toy car I've ever found. This particular one isn't expensive. Now...If I could have found a whole bottle today, not the half ones from 1870's that would have been nice.

I don't believe it really depicts any particularly car, but one that was very similar in style of the coupes that the big 3 were offering around 1936 to 1940 such as this 1937 Cadillac coupe

I think the car is a 1939 Zephyr coupe?

Glad to see you getting back out there Smokey..That car is a great recovery.
I’m confident that you will get some of those whole bottles very soon

Love the car. Toys from bygone eras are what I like.
