#764 UNKNOWN MANUFACTURER - UNIDENTIFIED BMW 320 (Around 1992)


MONTH OF THE UNKNOWN

I have a few interesting toys that I have been collecting over the years from which I know nothing at all. They cannot be identified since they have no manufacture marking. Despite searching the internet, I couldn´t find anything about them, so I changed my mind, and thought it may be better if I publish them now, and people reading this could help me identifying them.

There will be 11 toys (all 11 entries from January 2017), but I warn you: it is not an easy task to identify them. Are you ready for this challenge?

If I get hints and information, I´ll be updating the posts to add information about them. Thanks!

Today, I present one nice BMW wwith pull-back motor made in Hong-Kong. This model has a logo on the base which is a winged "A". I have discussed this with other collectors, but none seems to know who made this car.
 

 
The cast is good and has nice features like practicable doors, paper stickers, chromed parts, nicely casted interiors, the pull-back motor itself... The scale is very appropriate to put a pull-back motor inside. Many Hong-Kongese manufacturers actually did this in the 80s, and this brand is one more of many.
 
Additional information: Bought in a flea market in Austria.

  • Name: BMW 320 (8201)
