    Definitely slush mold. the fact that the bottom is semi closed is unusual. Look to be patterned afte 40 era Chrysler products. Neat little cars.

    I have a few of these that I inherited from my mother. They are the prize that came out of Cracker Jack boxes, from way back when you actually got cool stuff. I couldnt place a year but I'd say the 40's or so but no expert. 3 that I have she said she pulled from the box, so I hang onto them for nostalgia.
