Yes, we know it's a little bit of a contradiction in terms, but here's where you can talk about Norev, Minialuxe, Siku, Polistil, Tomte, Auburn, Sun Rubber or any other ready-made model car that's made of plastic or rubber. Hey, they're still cast in dies!

Is the wheel hub axle insert intact while the images suggest to me is the axle itself bent. I am trying to remember those types of eyelet fasteners used in those days as it must be 55 years plus that I had really seen them.

I think that the eyelets your seeing hold the friction motor to the base. It must open up in a different place and drilling these will just set the motor free from its mount. Not sure how these would come apart. I would think the axle goes through or just over the motor and is gear driven. Should be able to remove and straighten it out. Not sure as I have not had a toy like this before.

The underside section is glued into the main upper section and will require careful cutting with knives or Dremmel saw.

Thanks Jim, holding the friction motor in place. I wonder if the super glue remover would help if not then it is the dremmel way.

If it is really old then Hot Water would probably dissolve the glue. Only problem is the friction Motor. Hot water and then get it open fast and dry to prevent rusting. Not sure if that would work or not but maybe on a part away from the motor, near the front wheel, you could try a section by applying a cloth soaked in hot water, as hot as you can stand.

Not trying to put you off fixing this but due to the glued down base , unless you have a very sharp modeling knife & a steady hand , I would leave it well alone, it displays well & looks the part.

I got this NFIC version of the Singer Vogue , minus it's boot lid, I have some plastic left from the lid I used on the Matchbox garage . I will compare this with the Telsalda one later

The Telsalda is slightly larger scale & looks the better model.

I must say you have replacement parts down to a fine art now. Excellent use of recycled plastic.

I don't blame you dinky Shane, I have done quite a few repairs to plastic, i have cut bases of when they have been glued not by the factory & they are hard work, let alone a factory glue that would be like cutting through the thickness of the plastic.
