Various 70's & 80's Solido 9 years, 9 months ago #1

Sorry I didn't find somewhere else to post theses models.

First the Simca that still in one of my display cabinets and that was one of my childhood toy.





And the one I found last week.



Only front doors are opening.

Here wa have a Peugeot 604. Great car especially with its V6 engine.

I had this toy in the same color when I was young.
To push the front plate makes the bonnet to open.

I did exchange it for another toy three years ago. But it was such a good souvenir that I bought it two weeks ago.

I don't remeber I had this one. But I find it so lovely in its yellow coat, and like its foldaway lights.



The most common color, but a scarce variation with the silver sticker behind the rear-side window.

Solido is the brand that made me start collecting diecast as a grownup.

(When I was kid I had all the 75 Matchboxcars for the years 1961/1962/1963. My only 1/43 was Corgi Aston Martin DB4, I went buying groceries for a neighbour for some weeks to buy that one.)

What I liked about the Solido cars was that they had a lot of "daily driver". I did some paint "fixing" on some of them. Like on the Simca 1308GT and Citroen GS. I painted silver behind headlamps, orange blinkers, silver door handles and so on.



I have the following Solido. Mercedes 220SE -from sixties, metal base, very much like Dinky. Newer Solido: A few Renault 4 Van. Renault 5- cheap and more detailed versions, Renault 17TS, Renault 30TS. Citroen CX 2200, CX Break, Citroen GS, Citroen 15 SIX. Peugeot 504, 504 Break, 305 and 604. Ford Fiesta, Ford Escort MkII. VW Golf Mk1, Mk2.

Over the years my diecast collecting has been a little here and there. Today my main focus is on toy cars from 60ies and 70ies. Favourite Tekno. But Solido is what started it.

I also started collecting SOLIDOs as an adult (circa 1990!) - some of my favorite Alfa Romeos!

Most of the Solido I have were bought in the 70's and 80's, does that count the same ?

The "age d'or" series is really wonderful. Simple but well done and coherent models.


Only colours are sometimes not appropriated.
