Playart - Collection of various Vehicles 12 years ago #1

Expert Boarder
Picked these up today at a local Boot Sale, noticed a bag full of various items inc these as didn\'t have time to go through it all, bought the whole bag and after sought through ended up with these Playart models (Picture 1) and some similar, but not as well made imitations (Picture 2)

They are marked up as PlayArt Made in Hog Kong, but thats it no date or anything or more, a quick search on EBay shows similar types as Vintage, Rare etc, etc

Any further information would be apprecaited........

Sets Comprises of - Mercedes, Jeep, Fire Engine, Tanker, and 3 un-identified Sports Cars????

Nice finds. These are from the \"budget\" smaller-scale range Playart made. In your first pic, the yellow sports car is the Chevy Astro-1 concept car, the metallic red one is an Abarth 3000 and the orange one is a copy of the Hot Wheels Twin Mill, with the twin engines omitted. And in the second pic, the silver car is a Triumph TR2, not an Austin Healey.


The Triumph is quite hard to find and sought-after by Triumph enthusiasts.

Thanks for the info on these and the correction on the Triumph / Austin dilema...

You\'re welcome. I believe they were sold in the UK and date from the 1970\'s-1980\'s. I think the secodn set are also Playart, although they might be tootsietoy.

I can add that it is not a Chevy Van in the second photo but a Chevy Blazer. Like a pickup truck but has a removable rear hard top and a second and sometimes third row of seats. You can also get a tauna cover for the rear for the summer. I slopes back and down to the rear and has a large clear plastic window in it.
