History

Claas is a German brand founded in 1913, still flourishing today. Among other things, it acquired Renault Agriculture in 2008. It has several factories in France, including one in Le Mans, which manufactures farm tractors.

The Matchbox model could be a Matador, a machine which, according to its manufacturer, was built between 1961 and 1969 to more than 35,000 units.

For the 1970s, the most suitable model would be the Dominator.
