Toys of Yesterday and Today

Porsche 959







The Porsche 959 manufactured in Macau is an excellent model for the enthusiastic collector.

The MC name was used by the current Maisto International toy brand which is part of the May Cheong Group.  They become known for producing die cast vehicles in the 1980’s as part of a group producing motorcycles (May Tat Toy);  small vehicles like the Porsche pictured (MC Toy);  and the name we recognize today . . . Maisto. [1]

The Porsche pictured is considered  in excellent condition even though in ‘used’ condition. The model is a two-door, the body is die cast and the base is plastic.

Summed up the notable features are:

  • 1:36 scale (4 1/2 inches long)
  • Die cast body
  • Rubber wheels with straight axels
  • Clear plastic windows
  • Tan interior
  • Clear plastic headlights
  • Small black steering wheel
  • Yellow rear lights
  • Logo on hood and rear spoiler
  • Louvered rear trunk
  • 959 on license plates.
