Very early dicast car, has a few cracks and missing 2 wheels date unknown? but still a good find.

Hi

I think this one is either an Australian Winna toy or a US Tootsie, they made very similar castings, although I am confident it is the Australian toy. Should have no baseplate with axles mounted across posts or similar parts of the main casting. The underside of the roof may have makers mark. Winna or maybe FHE

This is my restored Winna sedan model that is close to this casting.

Hi

The rear truck looks like an Australian Brentoy model. The coupe is a Dinky, the smaller Army model is Matchbox Lesney, and the cows probably Britains brand.

My Brentoy collection page shows a few of their models. The rear of the found truck appears to have had the rear tailboard folded over.
