Rare Vintage Big 1940s Buddy L Sky View Cab 18.5″ L Wooden Toy Car Large Scale


I am pleased to offer this Vintage 1940s Buddy L Sky View Cab!  This rare wooden toy was produced by Buddy L, famous for their large scale pressed steel toys.  During a short period of time in the 1940s, due to WWII, Buddy L produced toys from wood due to the steel demand for the war.

This cab is huge, measuring just about 18-1/2″ Long!  The entire body is made from wood and features: opening side doors, opening trunk, original sliding plastic roof panels, interior original plastic windows/windshield, original metal hood ornament, original rubber tires on metal rims, and the wooden Taxi sign on the roof.   The door and trunk handles look a bit new.

The paint is all original, with a small area that looks to have been attempted at a touch up near the hood ornament (slight green tint stripe).  The wheels roll well when pushed, and the rubber is pretty hard.

This Sky View cab is in good condition for its age and rarity.  The body shows some moderate scratching and light loss to the paint, mostly centering on the roof area behind the roof panel.  There are some small nicks to the wood across the piece. The axles and the hub caps show some mild oxidation.

Measures approx. 18-1/2″ Long x 5-1/2″ W x 6″ H
