As I recall, there were a total of 7 of these generic Siku models. Some were more realistic than others. I seem to recall about 3 of them had truck bodies. It looks like Siku did not want to get licensing from the various companies involved; so they modifiied the castings enough to alleviate that necessity.
Can't recall all of these modified models; but included were sort of a Corvette, Dodge p/up and a Hummer and I think an Hispano- Suiza Concept modern sports car (?)
