More Unidentified Find
Wind-up Toy Cars

It's very coincidental that today's post is again about unidentified toys. The bottommost toy is a Chad Valley toy (Great Britain), but the other two cars are unidentified. I've seen similar cars like these before, but I cant identify their manufacturer.

 Metal Car
Sheet metal car with wind-up motor
Circa: 1930
Length:  8 5/8"  22 cm

The toy below caught my attention as the photograph was quite interesting.
I hope the seller wasn't taking the photo as he was driving!

 Metal Car
Sheet metal car with wind-up motor
Length:  9 1/16"  23 cm

Old Chad Valley Car (British)
Sheet metal car with wind-up motor
Circa: 1947
Length:  9 7/8"  25 cm

The identification of this car is very simple, since the name is 
lithographed on the  back of the car. Chad Valley was a British manufacturer 
of toys. As well, the initials "C.V." are on the front license plate.
What's also of interest is the fact that the steering wheel is on the right side of the car.

Thanks for dropping by,
and have a great day or evening.
