I.N.G.A.P. (Industria Nazionale Giocattoli Automati Padova) from Italy manufactured injection moulded model cars in various scales, including (near) 1/87. Two periods of production can be distinguished, the first models had no glazing and the next series was issued with glazing (similar to Wiking). The first series (without glazing) was modelled after prototypes of the 1950s and had broken-through windows. The modelcars consist of body and bottom plate with steel axles and one-part grey wheels, which were used for cars and trucks likewise. Peculiarity: although moulded in colored plastic the models were painted. The second production period (1960s) brought out models with American prototypes in 86th scale. The bottom plate was well done, whereas compared to that the bodies were a bit coarse. The wheels with star rims are very similar to the according Wiking types. There were 17 different models with glazing.

The models have definately been released in more colours, and the models seem to have been released unpainted as well, the Mercedes 300 SL pictured below is an example of an unpainted model.
