Year Introduced:1946
This model was produced from 1946 through 1953 and has 14 variations. Five variations all from 1946 have a plastic chassis. As seen in the photo, the car is warped because of the unstable plastic used at that time. Beginning in 1947, Gilbert went to a die cast frame in order to correct the warping issue, and so as such there are five variations of the #629 with die cast chassis that were produced from 1947 through 1953. Finally the #629 was produced with a sheet metal chassis from 1949 through 1953 with four variations.
