    I found this model car in my late father's attic. Total length 7 3/4 inches (19,5 cms), weight 1400 grams. The wheels do not turn. Would appreciate any information as to what it is and where it is from. By the looks of it, should be 1920-1930???
    Thanks

      At the risk of being shunned by all, I wonder why there is a CATV screw in the middle of it (photo 2)?

      That is a small bronze woodscrew that into the wooden (brown) "body". There are more small screws attaching the bumpers. Thanks

      Compare to older Alpha-Romeo; looks similar and they do have the bent front bumbper design.

      Just to make clear that this is not a typical model car but more like a design model. The cast metal parts and the wooden body suggest a different use or destination than for a model car, usually being a toy copy of an existing car. As said, it looks as if a designer made a 3D copy to have a better idea as to what it would look like.
