#684 CGGC GRISONI – INNOCENTI MINI MK2 and FIAT 500 (Around 1970)


These are two cars in 1:72 scale made by the Italian maker Grisoni (CGGC). I already dedicated one entry to this scale model manufacturer and where I showed two models in 1:43 scale.(http://toysfromthepast.blogspot.com/2015/09/585-cggc-grisoni-fiat-128-rally-and-bmw.html)
These two are made in a smaller scale and represent two older cars.
 
 
 
As said before, there are almost no information on the web about Grisoni, the only reference is that the company was active during the 70s and the 80s. I guess this two cars could be older than that, but I date them 1970 anyway.
 
 
 
I found other site that says some of these models in 1:72 scale are marked PEZ on the base. These were promotional giveaway from the famous sweet dispensers from Austria "PEZ". The promotion was active sometime during the mid 70s and there were at least 7 models to get: 3 utilitaries and 4 formula ones, each of them in different colours and/or colour combinations. The two cars presented in this entry were among them, but they are not marked PEZ, so they should belong to the standard series.
