This casting is a odd one, it didn't receive the treatment other castings at the time did & I never understood why...

That makes sense. Thanks for the info!

Shame I don't have this in my collection but I think I have the C-Class you are referring to?

Here is my fleet. Some have Dickie on the base, some of them Majorette, and some only "Made in China" and a Dickie serial number

That is an odd history...

Some has been sold as Majorette, some as Dickie ...and some came with a garage

This casting was also available from Dickie. This POLICIA Volvo XC60 was sold in Spain from Dickie, but
it is 100 % the same Volvo XC60 like the Majorette car.

The civilian versions were labeled as Dickie models in 5-packs sold in the UK. I believe they are the first versions ever sold.

Others probably know the story better, but at some point a catastrophe hit the Majorette factory (Tsunami? Fire?) and to fill orders they needed to use Dickie models in Majorette packaging (following the marriage of the two brands).
