Banthrico Diecast Toy Banks and Model Cars

 

Banthrico was a company that made toy cars, primarily out of metal. The resembled promo (promotional) cars, and some wer made to be used as coin banks. It's reported they made over 900 different toy banks over the decades.

They made products from the 1930s on up to the 1980s in one form or another, and were based in Chicago, IL..

Products made before 1985 would normally be stamped Banthrico on them.

These images were sent to me from a visitor to my site who had gotten them from an auction I believe, or from someone who had them in their attic and had given them to him. He was seeking information on what they were. If I rememebr right they were later sold on ebay.

He gave me permission to use these photos on my site.

I think they make an interesting subject historically, so I hope you enjoy seeing them. These are molds from where the cars were made from.

From the images the car looks to be around 1/24 scale maybe.
