Grell Werbemittel is a company that mostly specializes in making promotional items for other firms. The most recognized of these models was a series of "Ostalgie" cars which were given away by breweries in Germany with a case of beer. The Sternquell and Braustolz series are the most often seen and includes almost 30 different vehicles which were the mostly the same casting, but with different colors. Other vehicles found their way as promotionals to other breweries too, but the Braustolz and Sternquell series were the biggest. The maker was High Speed though most vehicles show the Grell name on the base.

A much smaller series of classic "Western" cars was made for them as well.
