The Kam Shing company was based in Hong Kong during the late 1970s to early 1980s when a variety of other brands were also issuing pull back motorized model cars.

They only issued 2 examples at the time - a Corvette and a Trans AM. Both are noted to be well executed with clear window glazing and a full interior that blocked the view of the pull back mechanism mounted inside the rear of the casting. The were done in 1:55 scale and had silver hubbed wheel sets.

In 1983 a new series of cars was issued called "Wrapper Racer" from a Tennessee base company called Kusan Manufacturing Company. This series contained a Corvette and Trans AM very similar to the Kam Shing models.
