This a beautiful clockwork toy car based on a Delahaye, I believe, with aluminum body and steering. It looks to be quite old and without a makers name on it. It sure would be a nice thing to have but nicer to know the manufacturer and a bit of the history!
As it turns out, we found the information in a listing at Auction.fr
Google Translate says... Toy JF (Jouef): Delahaye Toy made of cast aluminum, color bordeaux, brand JF in Paris, manufactured immediate after the war. Engine to spring, steering functional, steering wheel.
