Cheap plastic model cars in 1/41st scale were marketed under the name of Politoys since 1960. In 1965 Politoys also introduced a range of detailed diecast models in 1/43rd scale. The company name was changed to Polistil around 1970, in order to prevent the Italian manufacturer from being mistaken with Palitoys, an English company. In the 1970s Polistil concentrated its activity on larger scales, although models in 1/43rd and also 1/66th (in the "Penny" series) and later 1/55th scale remained in production: A lot of 1/25th scale models were made from 1973, and a series of models in 1/16th and 1/18th scale was released three years later. The last Polistil models were produced in 1993. In the 1970s, model cars from Politoys castings were also manufactured by McGregor in Mexico.
