Cragstan was a New York based toy marketing and distribution firm specialized in importing mechanical and battery-operated toys from Japan and Hong Kong, including tinplate and plastic toy cars, which was in business from the 1950s to the 1970s. In the late 1960s, the company distributed the Sabra diecast models made in Israel by Gamda Koor and marketed them under the "Detroit Senior" name. 18 models of the Sabra range, which mainly consisted of American cars of 1964-67 in 1/43rd scale, were thus also produced with the Cragstan logo on the bottom. Cragstan pulled out of the contract with Gamda Koor after the initial order of 3 million model cars was fulfilled, so the later models were distributed by Gamda Koor itself. Production of Israeli-made diecast models continued until 1975.
