Antique 1927 Arcade Cast Iron Yellow Cab #1 9″ L All Original Toy Car


I am pleased to offer this Antique 1927 Arcade Cast Iron Yellow Cab #1 Toy Car!  This beautiful piece is a fantastic example of Arcade toys during their first major success in the industry.  The yellow cab toy was introduced in the early 1920s after a young enterprising lawyer was “struck” by the sheer number of yellow cabs in Chicago, and approached the Yellow Cab Co. to make cast models!  This particular 9″ model was produced c. 1927, after the booming twenties propelled the company to build a new plant.

This yellow cab is all original, with mesh metal front grill, wheels, and cast iron driver.  The underside is marked “ARCADE” and “MADE IN USA”.

This antique Yellow Cab is in good condition for its age, showing some moderate paint loss from age/display.  There is light oxidation present in some areas of paint loss, the wheels, and on the driver as well.  The car rolls well on its original wheels, and the cast shows some cracks or chips.

Measures approx. 9″ L x 3-1/2″ W x 4-1/2″ H
