Husky Cars

Huskys were made from 1964 until 1969 and were sold exclusively at Woolworth’s. They were less expensive than Matchbox cars, which would probably explain why there were several of them in my family’s communal collection of cars.

This Citroen used to have a little blue plastic rowboat that snapped on top.
