In Auburn, Indiana, In 1920 the Auburn Rubber Tire factory came into being. In 1935 during the depression and cars were not selling much, they also started making rubber toys. It was a very smart move. During WW2 they made shoe soles for army boots.Auburn toys could be found in almost every sand box or childs toy box. The two I have here were made in the late 1950's or early 1960's. The convertable is a 1957 Cadillac Fleetwood or Eldorado. The previous owner painted the people in the car. Another interesting fact due to the age of these toys is that I have never come across one where the driver is a woman. Enjoy.
