The original item from The Curious American is now SOLD.
Arcade "Chevrolet Superior Roadster"
Arcade cast iron 6 1/2" Chevrolet Superior Roadster from the Arcade Manufacturing Company, Freeport, IL. On the underside of the car it is embossed "ARCADE MFG. CO". This car has a screen front grille, nickel platted driver and separate spare tire. The metal spoked wheels on this toy are original but the rubber tires although hard could be old replacements. There is paint wear but the car retains 75-80% of its original black paint. Except for the rubber tires this car is all original and has no breaks, repairs or missing parts and with the exception of a couple of small surface areas on the underside it has no oxidation. The styling of this Arcade Chevrolet Roadster exemplifies the beginning of the end to the more boxy like models. The lines on it are beautiful and as can be seen in the photos, it displays wonderfully. This toy doesn't come around very often especially in this nice condition.
Circa 1925 -1928, 6 1/2" long, wt. 1.13 lbs.
