TOPIC: Tekno Volvo 144 Taxi

Tekno Volvo 144 Taxi 2 years, 10 months ago #1

Gold Boarder
Last weekend at the toy fair in Joure, here in the north of the Netherlands, I bought a Tekno Volvo 144.


The model is in a very nice condition but the taxi sign, which fits in the two holes in the roof, is missing.


Rob v.d. Bovenkamp of Modelcarparts does not have replica signs for Tekno Volvo's in his assortment so I wonder if there is another  supplier where I could order such a sign.


Does one of our members know? 


Best Regards - Wolter.

I thought there was a Tekno suppiler over there somewhere in Denmark?

Problem solved!


Yesterday I received a perfect TAXI-sign from Peter Frandsen in Denmark.


By the way I had to drilll two holes in the plastic window part under the roof to make the sign fit properly.


I also ordered some other TEKNO parts for future restaurations.


 


Many tanx to Karls and Jim for their input.

Always nice to see a car put back to original. That sign sets the car off now.

You did that car justice!
I bought a few times from Peter too. He has indeed a fantastic supply of original and non original parts for Teknos

Tanx Theo,


By the way Peter Frandsen is very communicative and delivers promptly.


A pleasure to do business with.
