Retromobile 2019

By Fabrizio Panico

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author unless otherwise stated.

Once again February brings us back to Paris, both for Retromobile, and for the traditional auctions of Artcurial, RM Sotheby’s and Bonhams, a visual overdose enriched by a certain elegance, even if you start to perceive some slight fogging due to the changing tastes of the public. On the other hand it is for the market to dictate the show and not our personal interests.

This year Paris greeted us with windy days, but fortunately without the snow of last year. Alas the defections of the big automakers continue from their previous showcase of the Champs Elysées. First Citroen, Mercedes and Toyota left, now Peugeot has left its showroom too, leaving only Renault in the place that was a symbol of French motoring. How much longer before there are no showrooms on the Champs Elysées?

As usual, the Parisian show has attracted fans from all over the world. It is rich in novelties, celebrations of anniversaries, and exhibitions dedicated to specific brands. Even here there were alternate presences and absences: FCA is back, the absence of Mercedes-Benz is alas confirmed. Brand and/or model clubs attend in abundance, although their grouping together in Hall 3 reduces their presence a little.

Big celebrations took place of the centenary of Citroen with a great review of cars and prototypes, unfortunately narrow corridors meant the exhibits were difficult to walk around. Peugeot was a little poorly represented , maybe we had become used to better shows in previous years, whilst Renault chose to devote itself entirely to the ‘Turbo Years’, with the result of a series of cars of relative ‘aesthetic’ interest.

The general impression was of a reduced presence of real “vintage” cars in flavor of newer ‘classics’, which are evidently the most requested by the public today. This is the market! Fortunately the Teuf Teuf Club and the Compiègne Museum exhibited a rich collection of De Dion Bouton vehicles, while a specific exhibition was dedicated to the Bédélia, a classic of French cyclecars.

Another ‘gem’ on show was the monstrous Berliet T100, a giant destined for the African deserts and whose journey from Lyon to Paris constituted an adventure, considering its dimensions are ‘out of the norm’.

A rich collection of motorcycles from Gnome & Rhone was on show, as well as a display of the Citroen DS Chapron, in all their variants. Honda was celebrating the twenty years of the S2000 (too new in the Author’s opinion to be at such a show). The long suspension bridge between Hall 1 and 2 housed the Mini exhibition, celebrating their 60 years. There was an interesting cutaway Mini, but perhaps they could have included more variants : the Moke and the Mini Marcos appeared a bit lonely. As usual, the Saumur museum presented two tanks, a Sherman and a Panzer IV.

After lookinmg at all the displays there were plenty of opportunities to spend your money. There were many Dealers with their “jewels” and of course scale models, spare parts, books, and accessories. Add to that the wide range of goods from the many artists and artisans.

Again a show not to be missed where there is so much on offer that everyone can find lots of interest. The photographs below show some of the highlights of the show.

Some Smaller Promotionals

By Fabrizio Panico

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author unless otherwise stated.

Whilst browsing the January posts on MAR Online I re-read the one about the 1:64 True-Scale models, and I realised that up to now I never posted anything about a huge part of my promotional models collection : the smallest ones and easiest to store, the c.1:64 scale models from Norev.

These are so easy to store that I have already more than nine hundred in my collection. About twenty years ago the main French car manufacturers started to have small promo models made for them by Norev : Renault, then Peugeot and Citroen and now DS are reproducing their whole range. There are also regular updates for the usual half-life facelifts. The models are produced in various original colours and with accurate details.

These models released later among the regular ‘public’ issues, usually with fewer printed details. They are usually called ‘three inch’ models or fit to the box, but with a few exceptions 1:64 scale is generally used. In contrast the early ones were often 1:55 or 1:57 scale. All of them are diecast in metal, the first ones with a metal baseplate, nowadays with a plastic one. While the ‘public’ models can be found in many toy shops, the promotional ones are usually sold by the firms car dealers in their service departments, and more recently on the internet in the manufacturers own ‘on-line shops’,

Price of these models seldom exceeds five Euros. Alongside the ‘dealer promotionals’ and ‘public’ releases there is a third category: promotional models produced for industrial companies (and also football teams) for their own use. Firms like Darty, Vanden Borre, and La Poste have commissioned these as well as various charities who use them for fund raising.

This provides scope for a very large collection and they are not limited to French Car Makers as many other car manufacturers have requested promotional models for their own use : Opel, Lancia, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Fiat, Mini, for example.

A really comprehensive and useful web site is the one regularly maintained by Mike Branderhorst, also known as MjrttNrv, from the Netherlands (http://www.mjrttnrv.nl/ ). Here you can see many pictures and details about small Norev and Majorette models.


Photo 1 shows some recent issues by Citroen : C5 Aircross 2018, Berlingo Combi 2018, Berlingo Van 2018, 2 CV6 1975 and the famous Traction.


Photo 2 shows some of the the different colours available for the models in photo 1


Photo 3 shows a Mercedes M-Class, an AMG-Mercedes C-Class DTM 2006, and a Renault Electric Kangoo commisioned by La Poste with an opening side door

Happy collecting !

The French Dinky Toys Peugeot 403 Pair

An unusual offering from Meccano

By Terry Hardgrave

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author unless otherwise stated.

Producing two versions of the same basic automobile was not something that Dinky Toys normally did, but in the 1950’s, the French Meccano factory in Bobigny did just that. Part of the fabled 24 series of motorcars, the 24B Peugeot 403 Berline was introduced in June of 1956: the sixth new model to be released up to that point that year, followed by the 24F Peugeot 403 Familiale wagon in 1958.


The 403 Berline sedan was a very nicely done model of the real car that incorporated a feature not seen prior to 1956 on Dinky Toys: the appearance of a separate vent window, with a realistic thin vertical piece. This model of an early 403 also did not show the later front indicator lights, as the real car was first built with semaphore signals.

This model was first issued in black, followed by blue, then light grey, and yellow. Like other French produced Dinky automobiles in the mid-1950’s, this always came with white tires.

There were few changes made along the way, but the early versions did not have the towing eye at the rear of the baseplate, which was added later. Another change was adding clear plastic windows in 1960. Like all French made Dinky Toys, this one was also re-numbered in 1959, to 521. It was discontinued in 1961.

From the 1959 French Dinky Toys Catalog

The 24F Peugeot 403 Familiale was introduced by the French Meccano company in 1958, but along with several other new models, it was relegated to the back page of that catalog, and shown in a color never used, black.

As usual the French Dinky Toys factory did a masterful job of very faithfully creating an accurate model, and since this was issued a couple of years later then the Berline sedan, it showed the new front indicator lights. As opposed to the Berline, this was always furnished with black tires, and was never issued with plastic windows.

The polished wheels were originally convex, then later changed to the concave design. Colors were limited to two choices, a lavender blue or a later grey-blue. (A very rare, limited production all red version was issued for members of the French Dinky Toys Club.) Like the other French models, this was also re-numbered in 1959 to 525. There were no changes made during its run, which ended with it being discontinued in 1962.

From the 1959 French Dinky Toys Catalog

The Peugeot 403—a brief history

The Peugeot 403 made its debut in April, 1955 at a Paris auto show, and was offered for sale shortly after. It was styled by Pininfarina, and was designed with several interesting features: it came standard with a sunroof, the rear doors opened a full 90 degrees, and the rear door windows also fully retracted. The front seats were designed to fully recline, level with the rear seats.

The engine was an enlarged version used in the previous 203, and was a 4 cylinder displacing 1.5 liters, developing 65 hp. A short time later a diesel engine was offered as an option, one of the first French cars to do so. A four speed all synchromesh transmission was standard, with an optional automatic clutch offered later. There were three basic body styles offered: the Berline or sedan, the Familiale or station wagon, and a 2 door Cabriolet.

The Familiale had a 10” longer wheelbase and had a third row seat installed. The Cabriolet was intended to be a more luxurious, sporty vehicle, and featured an all-leather interior. Its sales price was much higher than the standard 403, so it was discontinued in 1961, and is now quite rare. Many people will remember the American TV series Columbo, where Peter Falk drove one of these, albeit a pretty shabby one. The 403 was produced until 1966, when it was superseded by the new Peugeot 404 model. Counting all models, including some small truck and van versions, a total of 1,214,121 were produced – the first Peugeot to exceed the million mark!

Atlas Dinky Deluxe 1429 Peugeot 404 Police Break

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author unless otherwise stated.

By Maz Woolley

My latest arrival from the UK Atlas Dinky Deluxe series is the French Dinky #1429 Break Peugeot 404 Police. This was seen previously in the equivalent continental Atlas series. The original model was developed from the standard #525 Peugeot 404 estate model originally launched in 1964 and withdrawn in 1970. #1429 is one of the dearer mint and boxed Dinky models on the obsolete model market perhaps because it was only in production for a year from 1970 to 1971. The continental Atlas series also contained a replica of the rare and expensive Pompiers de Paris promotional model which was based upon based upon #525.

The 404 was in the Peugeot range from 1963 to 1975 and continued in production in Kenya until 1991. In its final years in France it was produced alongside the 505 which was introduced to replace it in 1968. The 404 was offered with a range of engines from a petrol 1.4 Litre petrol engine up to a 2.7 litre V6 petrol engine. The diesel engined versions were strong sellers especially when it was used for business or as a Taxi.

The replica reproduces the original faithfully right down to the plastic aerial squashed in the box, though all the extra Atlas packaging actually means the aerial gets even more squashed than it did when originally released!

The masking of the black overspray is poor. Pictures on the internet suggest that the original was also poorly masked with black paint feathering at edges and at roof line. The upper part of the opening tailgate and bonnet were rather erratically masked as well. The Atlas reproduces these flaws but I would have preferred crisp masking as these are replicas and technology has passed on, others might not agree thinking matching the original adds charm.

All the features are at the rear where the tailgate opens and the rear seat folds up and down using a plastic wheel beneath the car. However, the tailgate will not stay open without being held which means I was unable to take a photograph with all the opening parts open.

The box makes much of these features but in 1970 this was a pretty basic stuff and many other models had a lot more opening parts.

Perhaps as away of adding perceived value a Dinky ‘No Cycling’ street sign was include in the box. Atlas have replicated that too.

The front end features yellow jewelled headlights, silver printed sidelights, a nice number plate and painted grille. However, whilst the grille has the centre logo panel included no Peugeot Lion badging is printed on it. The 75 on the number plate indicates registration in central Paris.

The French Police service was formerly known as the Sûreté and is a civilian police force unlike the Gendarmerie which is part of their armed forces. Police units mainly cover major cities and urban areas.

My Atlas account records show that the next model to ship to me will be the French Dinky Citröen DS23.

Atlas Dinky 1428 Peugeot 304

By Maz Woolley

All text and photographs by, and copyright of, the Author

The latest model that I have received from Atlas is a replica of French Dinky 1428 Peugeot 304.   This model was originally made in France from 1969 to 1971, then in Spain from 1974 to 1978. It was made to 1:43 scale as was generally used for all French Dinky cars. It was launched not long after the real car reached the market and was made in white and metallic green. Atlas has chosen to replicate the model in white. The box is a copy of the original which was the later style of box with a graphic image of the vehicle but unsigned and lacking any of the nice period backgrounds used earlier in the 1960s. The model shows French Dinky trying to control costs and the special features are limited to opening front doors and yellow plastic headlights. The model is of the Berline (Saloon) rather than the cabriolet or coupe which were also made. Its main competitor was the more radical Citröen GS. 

The Peugeot 304 was sold from 1969 to 1979. It was introduced to fill the gap between the 204 and the 504, though it actually used the mid section of the 204. It was usually powered by a petrol 1,288cc engine driving the car through the front wheels, though a 1,357cc Diesel engine became available during its production. Over a million of this type of car were made. 

The front end is dominated by the large headlights which are perhaps exaggerated on this model. The yellow lenses were compulsory in France at the time the model was originally made.

The rear end shows that the Dinky is modelled on the early 304 as the rear lights were updated in 1972. The 93 licence plate originates Bobigny in Seine St. Denis in the Paris suburbs where the Dinky Factory was located.

The photograph above shows the car’s opening features. Just the front doors. The 304 badging on the bonnet and at the rear is modelled rather larger than life. The interior is in red with a black steering wheel.

A road sign is included with this model, as it was with the original. Other signs were included in other French Dinky models of the time.

The next model expected from Atlas is another Peugeot, a 404 Police Car.
