The body is painted in black, interior is finished in brown. Many small parts are added. Photographs of the time show that the registration plates are correct. Steering wheel and dashboard are very well executed, and so is the baseplate. An interesting piece from French history.

The miniature is well shaped and has excellent details. The body is painted in black, and the interior is in light grey. Many small parts are added to give fine detail. The car can be seen in contemporary photographs and registration plates and other details are all correct with the president´s badge correctly modelled on the bonnet. Steering wheel, dashboard, and baseplate all well done.The wide white-wall-tyres help to create an impressive appearance.  Again another interesting piece of French history.
