This is the Tootsietoy #231 Chevrolet 2 Door Coupe issued between 1947 and 1952 in bright green.

This is the later version of the model, produced after World War II, with the black rubber wheels. Issues prior to the war had white rubber wheels and silver trim to the grille. It is a one piece casting with all detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, number plates, 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 United States of America" cast under the roof area, "Tootsietoy" cast under the bonnet, and "231" cast under the boot. The domed axles pass through the body casting and wheels and are peened on the right hand side of this model.

Note: on this casting the front and rear bumpers are solid, without space between the main body casting and the bumpers.
