  1. Nail puller
  2. Good idea. It would not be that hard to add a duplicate fin on the inside of those to give it some width. Another option would be to build the fin out of would and cover with fiberglass. You can buy...
  3. That's one of my favorite Matchbox cars.
  4. I have one of those signs similar to that. I don't think this box was ever made for outdoor use. It appears to be 3/4 in plywood and poorly assembled. I'm not saying it is not an original piece, j...
  5. Cool Custom! It's actually an AMF pedal car and someone did great job customizing it. All the chrome and fins were added.
  6. This small version did not have the driver. They are not rare and usually under $50.00 A keeper for sure!
  7. Nice one Mike. I'm going to take a wild guess here and say AMF, lol
  8. Looks like the Structo.
  9. As the other car one linked to is a 1903, I would say this is the same year. I will agree that based on the construction this is a 1950's car. As mentioned 1953 could be it as that was Ford's 50t...
  10. I'm going to have to say mid 50's. That magnifying glass was great to fry ants with on sunny day,lol
  11. Oldsmobubbles ??
  12. Awesome photo. I have the model kit of the Beverly Hillbillies Olds truck,lol Blunderbuss2, I don't think the Rocket name came until 1949-50 for the new V-8 engine.
  13. It will look great on the shelf. That one is quite pricey in mint condition.
  14. It is a 1/32 International and is not rare by any means. These have been made on and off since the late 1980's. In that condition maybe $2.00.
  15. Very nice! Love the price,lol It is an Arcade.
  16. MayBhere, When this was built flat cut lumber, in this case Ash, was not considered Grade A lumber. Trust me, it was at times veneered over. Oak was and still is less expensive than even maple and ...
  17. Great car even though it is missing the taillight and battery control box.
  18. I was aware that you were not in the states.
  19. We can get a "Vanity plate" for any passenger vehicle and a "Vintage plate" for a car at least 25 yrs old.
  20. It's probable Ash, but yes is was used on some. That wide open grain you have, giving it the 70's look, was not done back in the day. Most oak was quarter-sawn that gave it a tight grain and the t...
  21. He is a great site for locks. May take some time. http://www.antique-padlocks.com/index.htm
  22. Lol, It is newer to some of us old guys but I would call late 50's - 60's vintage when talking toys.
  23. It is an old one for sure. The original tag would have been under the four tacks you see in the top left corner on the back. This has been worked on and I believe the drawers once had veneer on ...
  24. This is a Steelcraft mid to late 1930's. It has been repainted. Still great to be in that good of condition and all the parts still there. It's actually a Fire Chief car. Love it!
  25. The spoke wheels are older than this one. I do not have any links but the info should be online somewhere. I have the book of Dayton Toy Makers.
  26. I would guess it was for dental work. The vacuum pump is used to degas mold making rubbers for dentures.
  27. I do believe this is the real thing. It is a Schieble Toy and Novelty Co called a Hill Climber. It would 1923 or later having the rubber tires and disc wheels. It is missing the front bumper and ha...
  28. Aghcollect, thanks for that link. I copied the post from that link as everyone on there has only posted that one item over a year ago. "murffdog, 1 year ago This is part of a 1920s Indian Motorc...
  29. fhrjr2, check the last photo. I looks like it does have a cold water tank in the top or vertical in the center. I have seen hundreds of these and have never seen one with the water tank. I'm going ...
  30. Very nice! I too love the wreckers and have a bunch of them. I have a few of the Cracker Jack toys but not sure about this one.
  31. Nice! Let me guess ... He's a Chevy man.
  32. I'm not a HW expert but have been around a few. That one would be from the more recent Vintage Collection. The original 69 cars would have black interior, Maltese cross on the side of helmet and ...
  33. That's pretty cool. The complete lamp is for sale on Ruby Lane for $250.00 http://www.rubylane.com/item/882650-es-371/Chinese-Blanc-de-Chine-Reticulated-design
  34. I think Kero-Sun first appeared in the mid 70's.
  35. I do not have any issues with this type of stuff as long as the vendor is selling them as decor items. I can get riled up when I see them being sold as antique. I do not care for the names on so...
  36. This does not look like an Asian cart made to look old, not from what I can see. The hardware would tell the story. It does look like a Paalmen ??? or close to that from the 30/40's. I would j...
  37. These show up at the antique mall, a dealer there sells all sort of replica antique looking stuff, including these. Many of the items have Remington, Well Fargo and other old names. I checked today a...
  38. Hard to say without seeing the front, that's always the most important angle when trying to figure out the make. That said it looks like a Bandai 1960's Sunbeam Coupe, about 5in long. Nice find!
  39. It looks like a recent made decor item.
  40. I looks like a tenon was cut out of the center of the opening. Maybe leveling jacks for some kind of table/cart?
  41. Of all the one I have seen, including the Standard Oil of California that I have are galvanized and not painted. http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/37351-standard-oil-co-can That said I do li...
  42. Are there any markings on the bottom? They are a little out of proportion.
  43. Boy, not anymore, I've been out of Ohio for about eight years now. I'll ask a few friends I stay in contact with.
  44. It doesn't look like a real old one. They were sold in the 70-80's for decorations to hang next to the fireplace. You can pop popcorn in the fireplace with it.
  45. Here's one with original paint. Definitely worth having it professionally restored. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/185069865910924564/
  46. Nice! I like the 4 legged Deere signs
  47. Looks like a late 20's Cadillac. Here is a link to my Pinterest page of Pedals. http://www.pinterest.com/arizonadiecast/pedal-cars/
  48. Very Nice!
  49. That is too cool. The tractor looks like an Arcade Fordson, made in 1920's & 30's. More photos would help.
  50. Need more photos but what is seen here indicates it's JD D made by Ertl in the early 1990's. The fenders and hitch have been removed.
