Kilgore Large Cast Iron Coupe for Sale Antique Toy
Kilgore Large Cast Iron Coupe For Sale – Antique Toy
-Well Loved Kilgore Coupe with desirable orange and in well used condition. Our car has a replacement driver and also has replacement wheels. It is not for the high end collector, this is for collectors that have not had a chance to get this incredibly expensive toy and wish to have fun & stay on budget. That, or this toy is for those collectors that just enjoy great looking automotive cast iron.
Length is around 8″, quite large for cast iron car toys. At the time, it would have been the deluxe and upper end of the pricing. The opening rumble seat is a nice added feature.
It appears this was a rusty toy at one time and has had a treatment to remove rust. What is left is aged metal and paint and all the original heft. A replacement driver was then added to complete the look.
Kilgore toys are quite sought after, and this larger toy is a treat to enjoy.
