After I raok'ed the Fun Ho away that I used to have, I just got around to buying new ones. They are New Zealand made. I think the Bel Air is a re-production with the old moulds and dies, now done here in NZ at a toy museum. The earth scrapers are original issues.

For all the info you'll ever need: http://www.funhotoys.co.nz/About-Fun-Ho.aspx

As I said, those issues that are sold through the website shop are re-issues. The original castings are used but they're not "original" cars at the same time. Micro Models has the same sort of system.

Your car might be original. I got a bunch of reissues and they all had blue windows! They were not cheap and I would expect not bought as toys but by collectors to fill in gaps in their collection. How can you tell it's a re-issue?

Just by looking through the website and the fact that it's paired up with that box. But the more I look at it, I'm starting to think that the box may be a new issue but the car itself original. It's actually hard to tell.

I thought it looked original to me.
Usually chipped areas on diecast gets dark looking with age like on your car.

I've been meaning to post, turns out they're all originals. The listing photo fooled me, the box is original too. :thumbsup:
