This is the Tootsietoy Dodge (1950) Pickup Truck in orange.
It is a one piece casting with all detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, doors, etc. cast into the metal.
There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "Tootsietoy, Made in, U.S.A." cast on 3 lines below the pickup bed.
All wheels are of a solid black rubber hub and tyre type. The flat head axles pass through the wheels and are held in place by passing through the body casting. The wheels are held apart by a metal tube so these axles may actually be pins, inserted from the outside of the body.
This casting was issued in 1950. It has an approximate scale of 1:50.
