The Tootsietoy models were the product of the Dowst Manufacturing Company of Chicago in Illinois. In 1935 Tootsietoy issued a new line of General Motors Cadillac LaSalle models, a 3-window sedan and a coupe. Both were available as "straight" or "convertible" versions, the later accomplished by an extra coat of khaki paint applied on their roof. The LaSalle models are some of the most beautiful automobile toys ever created, and while only 4" long, still the favorites of a  large number of collecting enthusiasts to this day.
