#395 MAJORETTE - RENAULT 17 TS (Nr. 260) (1973)


This model was made between 1973 and 1978. Through these years, the car was equipped with three different types of wheels:

Older model: Like the pink one.
Intermediate model: see UPDATE below.
Newer model: Like the orange one.


 It also came with two different types of chassis. The older one is less detailed, the newer one has a very impressive triple exhaust pipe.


And also with many different colour versions: red, dark red, turquoise, blue, dark blue, metallic blue, metallic green, light green, yellow, gold/yellow, orange and pink. Some models had “rally” stickers on the sides other didn’t.

This list was made checking http://passion-majorette.forumactif.com

Although there are very advance collections there, I couldn’t see the pink model anywhere. I think it is quite a rarity. Did you know it?





The casts are very well done, and it looks as if the doors or the bonnet were practicable, but unfortunately, this car model have no practicable parts.

UPDATE: I have bought a second pink model with the "intermediate model" wheels. It is in a much better shape than the one shown above.
