Detailed Information

Cardboard replica of 50s and 60s classic car food box

Made of lightweight poster board, these classic car food boxes are very easy to assemble. Makes are by Ford, Chevy, Corvette, Mustang, Hot Rods, Pontiac, Chevy with Flames, Edsel, Buick, Pontiac GTO. They make great centerpieces, decorations, or food baskets. Fill them with candy treats or a burger and fries. These are fun for kids of all ages.

Some of our customers have told us they make great wall decorations for a kid’s room, office, or man cave. Just assemble them and hang them on the wall (a push pin will work great to hold one on your wall). Choose the styles you want from the drop-down list.

Each car or truck measures approximately 12 " long x 5" high (including the windshield), trucks are slightly taller. The opening in each of the cars and trucks is 4" x 4", just right for center piece item or food & candy items. The colors are "as shown" only. No other color choices available. 

We do allow you to order as many or as few of the cardboard car food boxes and truck food boxes as you want. Mix and match, one at a time, you chose from the 30 styles.

Be sure to check out the recently added plastic liner inserts that fit precisely in the 4" opening to allow the option for food, (hot or cold) from spaghetti to ice cream, or, possibly a small plant, or container filled with candy treats, or be creative and come up with your own clever ideas. They are made of lightweight yet sturdy plastic. They are completely assembled and ready to pop into any of the classic cardboard cars or trucks we carry. Order as many or as few as you want. The liners make sure the cars stay re-usable.

    It was absolutely perfect. Your company went above and beyond our expectations. Upon discovering that some of the cardboard cars ordered, were unavailable, you went ahead and furnished even more than we initially ordered. This was completely unexpected and really set yourself a part.

    This was my first ever order and if that's how you treat even """"normal"""" customers, you've definitely earned a repeat customer. It was a cool item we used to furnish my brother in law's birthday due to his interest in cars. It was one of those unique pieces that made a difference.

    I really appreciate all you have done, and look forward to doing business with you in the future.

  17. Great order
