    Hello all,
    I recently acquired this from a yard sale because it looked fascinating. It doesn't have any marks other than a stamp for patent applied for on the bottom and the firestone tires. This car measures 17.25 inch long, 5.5 inch wide, and 7.5 inch tall. I can't tell, but I think it was repainted. I did some online research and found this car similar at the link below. Is this made by the same company and how old is this piece?

    Thanks,

      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 has been repainted for sure.

      Great find.

      Interesting, I never saw one like this referred to as a hill climber. Only seen them called a roadster and they had spoke wheels. I need to do some research I guess. Do you have any links available AzTom?

      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.
