Glad you are happy with your new additions, Theo. And thank you for helping by that in contributing to financing mine! Kind regards, Jan

Very nice cars you found Jan and I really like that tanker. It is in such nice shape. I have 2 here for a customer to restore.


Keesie, there is a number of things you could do with that Nash. Here is one done in real life 1:1 in Northern BC. Canada. This is a 1957 and was for sale back in 2010.

Thanks for that Jim. Before you placed it, I thought that Nash could have easily be placed on a fairgound.

Presumably there was something 'warming' in the spare wheel 'cover' ? ! ?

Not sure as it does not have wheels so you would like to think it had a nice rum toddy in there keeping warm for when you stop.
I also like the checker plate floor they put in and the 'foot' Gas pedal. Reminds me of the pedal cars here on the site and is about the same size as some I have seen here.

Nice scores, everybody!


Theo, your "unknown make Mercedes 180 body" is a Tekno, I'm almost 100% sure.

To come back to my previous post: I made some more photos, illustrating the 'strategic' meaning of my new acquisitions:


The Studebaker (on the right), completing the 39 set at last.


The green French Auto Union compared with the British one.

French: green body colour only - British: silver, red, blue and yellow.
French: post-war issue only - British: both pre- and postwar issues.
French: smooth black 18 mm ‘M’ tyres only - British: black or white 20 mm herringbone tread tyres.
French: ridged red wheel hubs only - British: smooth or ridged black wheel hubs.
French: racing numbers none or 1-6 - body colour in red roundel - British: none or 2 only, body colour in black, white or yellow roundel .
French: smooth rear wheels caps - British: rear wheel caps with protruding axle ends.
French: ‘radiator cap’ - British: no radiator cap present.
French: individual French black base plate - British: individual British base plate, colours same as body colour.
French: no driver - British: with or without driver.
French: packed in trade box only - British: packed in trade box or (pre-war only) 23 Racing Cars presentation box.  


The fourth type green Petrol Tanker (right) opposite its third type counterpart.
Kind regards, Jan

great selection of cars!

It would be quite easy to make the Nash with skies (I have those). Still, I compared the model with the pictures of the real one Jim showed.  

Oops, just noticed one of the rear lights is a bit wrong.
