The #660 Combine was produced from 1950 through 1952 and has six variations. The aluminum variations were produced in 1950 and 1951 while the plastic chrome cars were typically produced in late 1951 and 1952. The first photo shows two of the variations. The foreground model shows the 1950-51 factory production model, which has a chrome finish over a black plastic body. The one in the background is a 1950 aluminum car with the passenger door stamped on the wrong end. This model is a factory error unit and is believed to be one of only four that exist. Photo #3 shows the cars swapped with the error one in the foreground. The remaining four variations that are not shown include a common aluminum car with the door stamped on the opposite end as the one shown in the photo. The second of the four remaining cars has a lacquer-type chrome finish over a black plastic body. The third is similar to second except the finish is dull and NOT shinny like the previous car. The last of the four not shown in the photo has a satin-silver painted body and is extremely rare.
