Empire Rubber Co. Toys (11 Views) M60 Home     Toy Gallery    

Metallic green English version of Sun's 1940 Dodge, viewed from front right. The main difference between the Sun and Empire versions is the grille. The Empire version has a much larger grille with vertical bars. There are vertical lines in the headlights. There are windscreen wipers on the Empire car. Same car viewed along the passenger side. From the side, one sees odd, raised decorative fender detail above each axle, front and rear. Perhaps they represent louvres? They look for all the world like croissants, but are a nice touch.
Same car viewed from the rear passenger side. The three license plate numbers are illegible on this car. Despite the many similarities, this is not a knockoff of the Sun car. It is lower and narrower and presents a more streamlined appearance. Same car viewed in close up of left rear. Further difference can be seen by looking at the underside of both the Sun and Empire cars. The molds are very different.
Close up view of front of the car. Lastly, we have an overhead view of the Empire Dodge.
