    The '55 Chevy Bel Air 2 door Coupe has been done so often it is almost cliché. The 4 door sedan is another story. Here is one from not long after the car was new in a compatible 3 inch size. By today's standards there is a good bit lacking, but for the day and time it was made it is actually pretty darn good. And it was made in the good ol' USA.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Tootsietoy is one of the grandfathers of modern small scale models. Obviously, they lacked an interior and windows they were made in Chicago, IL.

      But judging by the condition of many of such vehicles, kids loved to play with their Tootsietoys.

        You bet we did! My grandma kept a little suitcase at her house filled with Tootsietoy and the F& F Molding cereal box promo cars for me to play with when we would come visit her. The little suitcase cars are all a part of my collection these days as well as the precious memories that come from them. Next trip down to the basement and I will take a picture of the suitcase and my '55 Chevy.

          Very, very nice old Tootsietoy 1955 Chevy Bel Air Sedan, Wes! I wonder if good old Greenlight might eventually tool up their own sedan version like this vintage Tootsietoy is since they've recently given us collectors that excellent four-door '55 Chevy station wagon. Here's hoping!

            Here is my '55 Chevy which has been repainted and detailed (not by me). One I have added to my Tootsietoy collection in later years.
