Hi, in the 1980's SIKU models were made in Manaus, capital of the Amazonas state in Brasil, and as some collectors have shown interest in these models in other forum i bring to you my very small sample, even here they are hare and expensive, this VW kastenwagen cost me about US$ 70.00 but has the brasilian maker label on its body

Interesting tires on that one. Is this 64th scale?

Siku uses several scales and are usually larger than Matchbox; this may be 1:55?

It is 1/55 Scale.  How do you know that the sticker is original?

It would be expensive to reproduce the sticker for only one miniature, the seller had just this piece. Anyway the P.Z.F. MANAUS inscription is in the zamac bottom and the maker used to put labels in portuguese in both  SIKU and Schuco models, so i bet it is original.

This Binz is as big as the Kastenwagen, i found it funny that opens one door in left side and two in right side, Manaus bottom too
