Thank you for your patience this is a great toy. It was a car produced in 1910-1920 and was at the beginning of the tethered race car. I ave gone through all the data bases to find the manufacturers during this time and have not been able to find the one with AJA. It does not appear to be a tethered racer as the photos show all angles needed and there are no clips to tether this car. The rubber on the wheels are original. It is in excellent condition for being the age and having been played with and loved. The value on this piece in todays market is 800-900.00 if you are looking to sell the car. For insurance purposes the value is 1200.00 if you were to insure the car on your home insurance. The metal is aluminum and the design is like the tether racer cars. The narrow back made for faster speeds.

If I may be of further help please let me know. I appreciate your help on the excellent photos.
