Gee ! A 1954 ? What kind of car is that ?

Hi ;

 Well here's a good one for you . Got this thing from a flea market . Pointed hood like a Stude , Four doors . Black rubbery wheels .

 I don't remember ever seeing one before . It's like a hard rubber . Comb material ? Anyway with no photos I will try to give this description . As I said Stude , type hood .

 Large open gash for a grille . Bumpers , duh, they were kinda Chevy looking . From the side it resembles a four door Styline or Fleetline body . Spear shaped tail lights with round lenses . Again that lousy Chevy type bumper , one end missing .

 Now for the interesting part . No windows were molded open as it was a hollow model . Four studs come from the top to hold the wheels .It's now an orangey red . It's about 7 inches long and I cannot read the mfgrs. name . The window areas are molded surprisingly well with frames and door handles ( Flush ) being very well done .

 Has anyone else ever seen one ?

    It's oddness caught my eye and I figured a buck was an okay price . It certainly did give me some ideas for a custom though .The rear wheels were completely covered but no line for fender skirts is visible .

Sounds a whole lot like a Tucker.  Go here to see if it is.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Gonna be pretty hard to identify it with no pictures.

Thread is pointless without pics.

A generic toy car, it sounds like--lots of "cars" like that were produced back in the 50's, for sale on open counters at the likes of Kresge's, Woolworth's and similar dime stores back then.   Not a model of any specific real car, just something to capture the eye of young kids, like I was once upon a time (73 yrs young I am now!)
