Plastic model cars from Ståhlberg and Emek (scale 1:24)

"A Volvo produced in Finland? Yes, plastic model cars symbolising the intelligent balance which Volvo Finland maintains on the border of trade policy. The purchases of Volvo in Finland create more selling space from Sweden" (Volvo Monitor number 1, 1984, page 46).

Thanks to Michel Tholen for providing details from Plastic model cars and toys from H. Ståhlberg Oy in Nummela.
