Focal Point: 1936 Chevrolet • Kuramochi – c. 1936
By Steve Butler
ONE OF THE included photos shows 2 tin toy vehicles. The lighter blue and smaller car at 6.2″ has been readily identified as being a Hupmobile from Kuramochi. The darker blue and larger car at 6.6″ arrived recently in its box which is labeled “NEW CHEVROLET.” However, the lower left corner of the label is missing, and that is likely where a maker name or logo may have been. So, there was a need to determine its maker.
