Starting in the late 1950’s up until the early 1980’s, some banking institutions were giving these wonderful metal banks to their customers for doing business with their bank. These metal banks were manufactured by Banthrico, Inc. in Chicago, IL and were made of “white metal” consisting of 95% zinc, 5% aluminum with traces of copper, brass and lead.

This nostalgic 1974 Model T Ford metal car bank is in very good vintage condition. There are only minor signs of wear (see photos above). All four wheels are in excellent condition and move freely.

The bottom of the car reads: “1974 Banthrico Chicago”. There is a removable slotted cover on the bottom that is stamped: “Banthrico Inc Chicago USA”.

Bank measures approximately 5.5 inches long by 2.75 inches wide and is 3.25 inches tall.

This Model T Ford bank would be a great starter bank for a little boy just learning the benefits of saving.

The tea kettle arrived quickly and it was well-packaged.

The kettle is even more stunning in person. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
