Lindberg was based in Skokie, Illinois and has had a long history of producing plastic model kits and some promotional models.

In the 1960s, they introduced a line of "Mini-Lindy" plastic kits in the 3" small scale size. This casting line was released several different times with different series names. The last offering was in 1997, as the "Miniature Mint Collection"

In 1997, they also offered a short run of ARCA stock cars. Most noticable in this range is the Dodge Avenger casting. The base plate has the reference of 'Lic by Crafthouse Corp'.
