1973 Sindy’s Car

Text from the 1973 Sindy Brochure.

“In 1971 Lines Brothers, filed for bankruptcy and Tri-ang Hornby was sold to the Dunbee-Combex-Marx business conglomerate.” From the page 304 of the book Encyclopedia of Play in Today’s Society, Volym 1. Rodney P. Carlisle.

Since Pedigree now was in the Dunbee-Combex-Marx business conglomerate they had the possibility to reuse the Johnny West Ranch jeep, sold in 1966 and forward, one of Marx’s successful toys.

Marx’s box with the trailer as well.
Pedigree’s box with only the car.

Pedigree didn’t change anything but they added “fun stick-on shapes” for decorating Sindy’s Buggy. The stick-ons shown in the Brochure was different from the ones that came in the box when sold.
