    Ok ! this was a car that has been setting on my grandmothers shelf for as long as I can remember . I love toys die cast especially ... I'm more into Ertl or Franklin Mint . This one has me puzzled. I want to say its a Hubley ,but there are no markings what so ever .. I don't want to say it's a reproduction just because of the age .. I could be wrong .. Please help to identify it no matter the out come .. Thank you !

      The fact that it belonged to your grandmother, makes yours much more valuable.
      Agree?

      A repo for sure. I would guess late 70 early 80's. The non taxi version is being made yet today.

      Hang on to it for the memories, they are priceless!

      They sure are! I have a hard time parting with cast iron. Even if it is a re pop.
