DAF, the Dutch truck firm introduced the Variomatic Transmission for the first time in the 1960s.
It was a novelty then when they put this feature inside the DAF 33 model, a 750 cc engine car model. After 5 years, the same was introduced in the model DAF 44 that carried a powerful 2-cylinder 850 cc engine.
This scale model is an exact rendition of the original DAF 850.
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.
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.
