Overview

The Barclay Manufacturing Company of New Jersey produced wonderful, now highly collectible cast metal toy cars and car transports from 1932 through 1971. This book is the first to provide comprehensive catalog listings and prices for every known variation and color, in all four separate series. With few exceptions, these beloved vehicles were not marked with the manufacturer's name or country of origin. Over 75 beautiful, full color images display 100s of these toys, allowing easy identification for the very first time. The detailed text provides a history of the company, a description of the four series (Vintage, Streamlined, Classic, and Modern), the production methods and painting techniques of each series, various packaging techniques employed by Barclay, identification and pricing guidelines, and fourteen identification charts. Values are found in the text.
