Toy car, Weekin Hillman Minx, trade name Chad Valley, clockwork operated, metal, made by Johnson Brothers Ltd, Birmingham, England, 1956 This die-cast toy car is a well-modelled representation of a full-size Hillman Minx. It is operated by clockwork, and the key hole for its operation is in the side. The clockwork mechanism can be seen inside the car through the cut-out windows. The combination of die-cast manufacture and clockwork operation is unusual. It is finished in red with black wheels and silver hubs, grille, lights and bumper bar.
