AmarToy is a Delhi based manufacturer in India.

This example came my way recently and is about 235mm long.



They seem to come in many colours including metallics and although not particularly old (made sometime in the eighties) is a nice item in my collection.

It’s based on the Pontiac 1954 Minister Delux, and has friction drive.

I’ve read many reports this is a copy of the much nicer Japanese toy by Asahi (ATC) of a 1954 Pontiac Star Chief, even so it’s still a nice tinplate car.
