Old Handmade Make Do Wood and Metal Toy Car

Regular price $40.00

This is just a little thing, but I love it so much, perhaps most of all the red star painted wheels. I am not completely sure what the metal pieces were salvaged from, but surely they had a life before becoming the sides of this little car or truck (?), nailed (with nice fat nails) to the sides of an old block of wood that forms the main body, and painted blue and red (much of which is clearly long gone.) Things like this make me very happy, just teeming with love and determination.

1930s or so I'd think. 3 3/4" long x 2 1/8" wide x 1 11/16" tall. Aged and worn in the best of ways, and structurally sound.
