Precision Accucast, aka Accucast was owned by Mike Weston who was a prominent model rail roader in Massachusetts. In the 1980s, he made rubber molds of the Tootsietoy GM and Ford models and other Ford, Mack and Chevy trucks and fire engines and then cast lead reproductions of them. Most reproductions were of vehicles from the 1920s and early 1930s, but at least one 1950s Chevy truck was reproduced by Weston. Most were modified from the original Tootsietoy designs and handful of some Dinky models. The #230 series consisted of 3" models. These were noted to have had a separate chassis and a grille piece with attached headlights. The original models had been of a one piece composition. The wheels were equipped with removable rubber tires. He was only known to have made these castings for 3 to 4 years before his passing.
