#334 TOMICA – CHEVROLET CORVETTE, CITROËN 2CV, BUGATTI COUPÉ DE VILLE, PORSCHE 928 and PORSCHE 936 TURBO (No. T1, T3, T8, T9 and T22) (1993)



Thenext 5 cars are further examples of the “British Line” Tomicas, from which I made an introduction in this entry.

All of them can be seen in the catalogue pictures, because they were sold in the same blister card as those. 



They are all repainted models from the 70s and 80s. It’s easy to identify these releases, because they’re made in China, instead of Japan. Nevertheless, they’re nice collectables and rare to find in Europe. As a reminder, the date casted in the base refers to the year in which the car was manufactured. All these models date from 1993.

 
CHEVROLET CORVETTE “STINGRAY” – No. T1 – 1:64 – 1977 - Unfortunately in very bad shape


CITROËN 2CV – No. T3 – 1:57 – No Date


PORSCHE 936 TURBO – No. T22 – 1:59 – 1978


This next two cars were bought and photographed later:
