Found this yesterday. Guy had it marked as a Celica. He's obviously not into J-tin. Couldn't resist the urge to buy. Looks like an ashtray. Probably some type of promo from a car dealership. Any one have some more info would be cool to know.

The car is a early 70's Toyota Carina, not many in the states but is built on the Celica chassis. What you have there is a dealership promotional business card holder for salesmen to put on there desk. I have a friend with a 72 Carina and he would probably buy this from you if you decide to sell.

Actually, I believe it is a cigarette holder. Remember, back in the 60s, smoking was not yet as vilified as it is now. You could walk into any house or office and find a cigarette holder sitting on a coffee table or desk.

I have a brass 2000GT and a first gen Cressida cigarette holders like that. Unfortunately, the clear coat is peeling and they are both tarnishing. My plan is to someday strip them down and give them a nice coat of paint.
