Located in San Francisco, California, EFS marketed 'WT' prefixed numbered castings that are attributed* to have been made by Universal and Welly around the 1980s. Their "Flash Car" brand series was a range of cars and their "Flash Trucks" were of commercial vehicles.

In the late 1980s, they marketed a series brand called "Super Wheels" using Universal made casting showing the circled 'U' logo on their bases.


*The diecast encyclopedia also references 'WT' prefixed #ed castings as made by Tintoys. And while Universal does have an assocation reference to EFS' "Super Whels"; it does not have the corresponding 'WT' reference. Welly also has a brand asscoation listing to EFS, but no reference to the 'WT' # prefix system. Note here that the reference for Universal is for the circled U logo only. Both the Tintoys and WT reference also ask you to see EFS also.

Clarification around the information provided for this company needs further vetting. The corresponding listings do not mesh together for the information provided at either encyclopedia listing reviewed.

Does anyone have any of these known EFS castings and images or information about their base information? :lurk5:
