It was in 1958 that Berliet introduced the GAK 5 (with petrol engine) and GAK 19 (with diesel engine) models. With the interior of this model designed by a famous French born American designer Raymond Loewy, this model was available with cabover design as well as tilting-type. Another option of having the sides in wood or steel was also given.
This metal scale model is a rendition of the original DINKY TOYS, a brand first sold in 1934. The manufacturer has tried to recreate the old-world magic by retaining the same features on each metal model as well as its box.
This particular Lemonade & Beer truck model was first produced in 1964 in France and was produced continuously until 1969. Today the original model can easily fetch yu up to Rs. 18,500/-.
Dinky Toys were sold in India until 1955 when they were imported. Then in 1963 Meccano (owners of the brand) sold their factory to a firm in Calcutta called S. Kumar & Co. who started producing them locally. But because the finishing of these products were so poor they were sold as NICKY products.
