    Love your boat tail racer and Tootsie toys. I think your cast iron racer may have been made by A C Williams and I including a link to another racer made by that company. The design is very similar although there are some differences such as the inclusion of headlights. I would be interested to hear what you think.

    Thanks fourpeeps,vetaio,and jamie! Yes that is very similar ,do you think maybe one is just older that the other?the one you show seems to have more detail.
  3. fourpeepsake fourpeepsake, 3 years ago
    That's what I thought as well. Losing detail in the creation of new castings would not be unusual. I did check on Hubley, but from what I found they made nothing close to this design.
