This truck from Foden was built in 1947.
This metal scale model of the Foden Diesel 8 Wheel Wagon is a rendition of the original DINKY TOYS, a brand first sold in 1934. The manufacturer has tried to recreate the old-world magic from the year 1948 when this model in 1:48 scale was first released and got produced until 1952 (they were then made in few different colours including this red-grey paint).
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.
