This is the Goodee Cadillac Convertible (1953) issued in the mid 1950s in red.
This version of the model is a one piece, crude casting with simplistic detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, numberplates, seats etc. cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "Made in U.S.A" cast on one line under the boot and the "Goodee" trademark(?) under the bonnet. The flat end rear axle passes through the black, solid rubber wheels and is pinch-clamped to mounts on the body casting. The dome end front axle passes through the black, solid rubber wheels and is pinch-clamped to long mounts on the under-side of the bonnet.
