Partly sunny and cool
I found a new company that manufactured what is called a promotional piece. In the 1940's and 1950's car dealerships would purchase promotional pieces and would hand them up to customers who purchased their cars. Of course, the fathers or mothers would pass these promo pieces to their children who would then play with them. The pieces were made either for car dealerships or for truck dealerships, but in either case, children would have fun playing with these "toys". Most of the times presented today were die cast with rubber wheels. Like any other collectible, these promo pieces still are in demand.
