An executive car meant to replace the earlier model called the Olympia, the Opel Rekord introduced in 1953 went on to be manufactured until as late as 1986. It was one of the most popular brands from the Opel stable.
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 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.
This Dinky Toys model was brought out in 1964 and was sold until 1969. The current model is a replica of the original 1964 model.
