Wyandotte All Metal Products Company Red Pressed Steel #331 Battery Op. Coupe, Rubber Tires, with Original Box
This is a pretty sweet pressed steel red “Wyandotte Coupe” model #331 battery operated car with original box manufactured by Wyandotte Toys (All-Metal Products Co.) of Wyandotte, Michigan. The box touts “Wyandotte Toys are good”, “Wyandotte Toys are safe”. These pressed steel cars (this one named the ‘Wyandotte Coupe’) provided fun for hundreds of children growing up pre-World War II. This particular one was released at the height of the company’s popularity and is new old stock.
The pressed steel body’s paintwork is a snappy race car red with black painted fenders. The white rubber wheels are in great shape with minimal cracking, slight yellowing, and not completely petrified. It is marked “Wyandotte Toys” and “Made in U.S.A.” on all 4 tires. The wheels roll wonderfully and the axles are straight. The headlights are the original ones that came with the car. We tested it and only the left driver’s side headlight lights up. We believe the other bulb is just blown and if replaced would work fine.
The box is in great condition. There is some creasing, edge splitting, and yellowing that is to be expected with age. We did also notice some warping from humidity.
The condition on this vehicle is excellent near mint with box, original rubber wheels with red and black paint. We detected no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch ups. This piece is in overall excellent condition with the usual wear, scuffs, and scratches that are to be expected with age and display. The car is approximately 8 ¼” x 3 ¾” x 3 ½”. We encourage you to peruse the photos to get a better idea of condition and quality.
