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 ?

Jacques

I have corrected the appropriate Post, although with most of what I had written manyears ago being screwed up in the transfer process, I can only assume that was the only error. Fortunately, in a later Post with a different layout, I had the correct anniversary.

Kind regards

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.
