When this metal model of the Ford Flatbed Truck was first released in the 1948 edition of the Dinky Toys catalog, it was first called "Advanced Cab Truck" and the first production rolled out the very next year. This model became so popular that it continued to be produced for the next 6 years, until 1955.
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.
