Yellow But No Gold

Recommended Posts

I went out to the Chocolate mountains today to prospect a bit. The Chocolates have small gold, that and my lack of prospecting skills yielded zero nuggets. I was in a good size wash detecting the cracks in the exposed bedrock with no luck so I moved up to the first bench above the bottom. Got a big signal that ID'ed steady from all directions. This little all metal toy car was down about 6 inches in small gravel. It was lost intact, as you can see the front axle has rusted apart but it is complete. I am guessing the car is pre 60's but I am no toy expert. It has been years since we have had enough rain to flow water that high in that wash. Ha...got some yellow afterall.

How big is it?  Helps to put either a ruler or something of known size (e.g. coin) in the pic to help us evaluate that.

Definitely looks old.   What are the wheels made of, metal or rubber?

The spare tire made me think of Rolls Royce though I know nothing about cars or toy cars. Some Google searches found newer versions...
