Cast Metal Vehicles M60 Home     Toy Gallery

There are both stamped and cast metal cars pictured here including a stamped car carrier and a cast large green roadster. Though it may well be a copy, this large red roadster is wonderful. At this time I am unable to afford many cast toys, copies or not, so I don't know as much about them as I do the other toy cars and trucks on this web site. For info on them, I have to rely on the work of others.

Between 1920 and 1940 slush mold cars were made in the USA. The hollow-casting toy cars from alloy mixtures were produced in small home town factories or workplaces near Kansas City. Famous names in the slush mold toy industry are: Barclay, Best Toy & Novelty Factory, Kansas Toy & Novelty Company, Lincoln White Metal Works, C.A.W.(Charles A. Wood), Mid-West Metal Novelty MFG.Co., M&L Toy Co. Inc. (Thanks to for this information.)

Pictured is a 2-4 locomotive missing a pair of the middle wheels. There also is a matching tender and a nice red passenger car. Here we have a 4-4 locomotive and a Pennsylvania RR tender. There also are two regular passenger wagons and a third with an observation deck at the rear.
