Hi ALL!
I've asked other forums, no one really knows who made this! I'm hoping someone HERE knows!! At first I thought it was a Cadillac, then I realized that it had NO fins! Then people were saying maybe it's a '50's Chrysler Experimental car. Notice the long swooping trim from front to back, the exhaust pipes are just after the door. It sort of has suspention, it has pivot points into the side of the body. It sort of steers, back and front. It's about the size of a first generation Lesney Match Box.

Does anyone know who made this, even if you can't figure out whta kind of car?
Many thanks, MatchBTedII

Sure looks like a Cadillac to me... 8)

Early 50s Cadiallac to be precise.

And FYI, they didn't have big tailfins back then. :wink:

'53 Deville for reference:

But it could just as well be "nothing". As in, chiseled by the toy designer using elements from many different cars of the era?

Hi!
Ya, I know Caddies didn't have big fins in the 50's, but this car has NO fins at all. That Deville has some fin on it's tail. Nice car!

I don't think it's a real car. As DF said, probably a mixture of popular styling elements of the time.
