      Definitely slush mold. the fact that the bottom is semi closed is unusual. Look to be patterned afte 40 era Chrysler products. Neat little cars.

      I have a few of these that I inherited from my mother. They are the prize that came out of Cracker Jack boxes, from way back when you actually got cool stuff. I couldnt place a year but I'd say the 40's or so but no expert. 3 that I have she said she pulled from the box, so I hang onto them for nostalgia.

      Thanks so much for the info on them.i didn't have a clue where they came from
      glad back then didn't go by weight or you would of got 2 kernals of cracker jacks and then the car..hows your rubber tires doing? i seem to have lost 1 of mine on the 1 car from dry rot?i am also keeping mine just from the memories of a kid finding them in the old house we moved into when i was young btw i still live there.

      I would guess they were made by Barclay
