Arcade Cast Iron toys are some of the finest metal toys from the pre World War 2 era. They were made in Freeport, IL and well cast in iron, then sanded, painted, and detailed with love.
Early Arcade Cast Iron was often licensed by automobile and truck dealers, even used for promotional items. Chevy dealers as well as International and Ford dealers used these cast iron vehicles along with custom touches.
