Re : -196 Holden Special Sedan (1963-70)

i Bruce,

 

In one of your interesting posts above you wrote that this model was issued in 1963 to mark the CENTENARY of Meccano in Australia.

I suppose that you meant "half centuary as in 1963 - 100 = 1863 Frank Hornby was probably not born.

Can you please confirm the aniversary and correct your post ?

Re : -196 Holden Special Sedan (1963-70)

To complete this post, I present you my two Holden just arrived.

You will notice that Meccano used two dies for the bonnets.

The inside of the turquoise model cover has one "point" under the "N" and an injection mark on the left of HOLDEN.

The inside of the  bronze model cover has two "points" under the "N" and an injection mark on the right of HOLDEN.
