Recently, a Belgian toy retailer called Dreamland started selling Norev using their own brand name. The Norev-sourced ones are all emergency vehicles, like this Porsche

This is the Belgian police. The Dutch police used to have Porsches up until the early 1990's. Nowadays they have Volkswagen and Volvo.

Correct. You might have seen this one?



This is a Peugeot 308 (2011 model) from the local police. The Porsche has the livery of the federal police.

THat is a super car. It doesn't have an A-pillar does it?

It kind of does the same trick as the Mini. I believe the real car has an A=Pillar, but it is kind of hidden.

Norev is kinda rare here in Brazil.


Well, if you exclude hot wheels and Matchbox, you won't find much around (new cars).


It's great to see those new Norevs.


I don't collect them, and I only have 1. It's pretty worn. haha.


It's from the 70's, as far as I know.


I've googled looking for info about this car and didn't find much.


What can you guys say, is it rare? cheap? trash? haha..

Not into the Norev line so don't know much about them at all.

In Europe it is not particularly rare and they are normally not collected so much. Yours seem to have a common issue for Norevs of this age: Saging wheels. Paint chips and a cracked window would make it worth nothing in most European countries. I can see how it i might be rare in Brazil and worth more over there. Didn't REI make these as well?

It seems Norev has gone slightly smaller in scale, recently.



This Citroen C4 Picasso of the 2nd generation is smaller then it's predecessor. This make the scale closer to 1:64 then it used to be in the past. They've become less robust as well.
