Description:
Cast iron ambulance in white. One of two ambulances from the golden era of automotive toys (1930s) that was undoubtedly produced as a prototype for possible production. Although Arcade produced a smaller ambulance (approx. 6") there are no other larger ambulances produced by any toy company from this era. The White panel truck is normally painted in a lighter green, as was the case here, but the toy has been overpainted at the factory in a white color with a red cross. Perhaps the decision was made after viewing this toy not to produce for commercial use.
