V Series Metal

Series

Then in 1963, 12 new models produced in zinc alloy were introduced, and these were spray painted by hand. Between 1963 and 1969, new releases were made in both plastic and metal, but there was a gradual shift to metal with fewer plastic models. The last plastic model was issued in 1969, and since that time all new models have been die-cast zamac.

Most V-series vehicles came packaged in blue, red and yellow cardboard boxes with the names and illustrations of the vehicles contained within. On the boxes, in German, was written "Siku-Flitzer" (or, "Siku-Streaker"). For some time on the boxes, illustrations of the vehicles were bathed in a yellow light from the round sun-like Siku logo. Other V-series boxes had orange and cream or green and yellow panels. In 1973, the letter V was removed from the numbering system. Sikus used rhinestones for headlights. The V Series came to an end in 1975, when the Super Series was introduced.
