Willys (MB) made by Jeep was so much the backbone of the American military during World War II, that President Eisenhower once mentioned that the MB was one of the three decisive weapons used during the World War.
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.
