The foundation of the JOAL company dates to 1949 (started by JOsé Boronat Bernabeu and ALejandro Beltrá), at which time they made both small metal toys and locksmith accessories. This second activity was short lived and JOAL has concentrated on toys ever since.

Like a lot of diecast car makers, they started by making other small items including sewing machines and toy guns.

During 60's and 70's JOAL started to specialize in scale metal miniatures of cars and public works equipment, and more recently a line of trucks.

Until 2015, JOAL had about 55 employees at their 130,000 square foot, state of the art factory in Spain. Where they manufactured models of such brands as Volvo, JCB, Paus, Manitou, Komatsu, Caterpillar and Liebherr.

Joal ceased production in 2015.

Hi, I have Joal toy that was given to my father when my brother was born in 1962. He worked for Kelly Tractor at the time and that's who gave him the toy. Looks like a dump truck, yellow, and says ref 223 on the box. Any idea what it might be worth?Thanks for any help you can give me. I've been looking on the web and can only find eBay listings, but nothing like this truck.
►reply: 1962? I can't find this truck older than 1980 unfortunately and those are around 20-30 USD. You could also ask the experts at this forum.

Cleaning out my attic at my dads and found some old toys. One was the Joal Compact Volvo L70 and BM 6300. Curious what year these were made. They were never removed from the box.
►reply: Probably 1980s, value around 30-40 USD each.
