#635 TIN'S TOYS and TINTOYS - GULF MIRAGE (W.T. 505), LOLA L & M 260 CAN AM (W.T. 701) and PORSCHE AUDI (T. 313) (Around 1979 and 1983)


This time I am presenting three cars that fit together well because they were made by the same manufacturer under two different brands. First Tintoys then Tin's toys (as explained in entry #594)


Tintoys models are W.T. 505 and W.T. 701, while T.313 is Tin's Toys.

W.T. 505 GULF MIRAGE
W.T. 701 LOLA L & M 260 CAN AM
T. 313 PORSCHE AUDI


The interesting thing is that the name of the car casted on the base fits perfectly with the stickers the carry: Gulf Mirage actually has "Gulf" stickers, and the Lola L&M 260 Can Am has "L&M" stickers. Chance? I don't think so.


Another very interesting fact is that the Lola also has a sticker "Club Norev". Which is the relation between this brand and Norev?


UPDATE: I got three more Tin's Toys models that would fit perfectly in this entry. They seem to be more modern models and came without the plastic driver.

The grey one is a Matra Simca MS670 (T316)
The blue one is a March 707 Can-Am (T315)
The orange one is anotherPorsche Audi (T313)







UPDATE 1 (May/2017) Added second MATRA with original type of wheels and original sticker at the front.
