The ERTL Company is an America toy company best known for its die-cast metal alloy collectible replicas of farm equipment and vehicles. The company is based in Dyersville, Iowa, home of the National Farm Toy Museum. In the 1990s, Ertl also began production in Mexico, inevitably laying off the employees of the original Ertl factory which would become a warehouse/distribution facility and an outlet store.
The popularity of Ertl toys is undoubtedly due to their detailed, small-scale representations of tractors
and other vehicles. For years, Ertl's advertising slogan was "Ertl just like the real thing, only smaller."

Here is one of the great collection of 1/64 scale Chrysler truck with trailer and a NEW HOLLAND L665 TURBO.
I brought my set from a LHS for RM 39.90. I think they still some in their store.

The Trailer wheels does not looks good, but the trailer is metal.

This is a real New Holland tractor.

This ERTL L665 just like the real thing, only smaller. The tractor is made by metal and it is heavy.
