Citroen Coupé Le Dandy by Norev

Around 1958 the French coachbuilder Henri Chapron started building coupes based on the iconic Citroën DS. In 1960 Chapron came out with a two door hard-top coupé named Le Dandy. The French diecast maker Norev made a nice 1:43 scale model of this car. I came across one during my visit the Citroen C_42 store a few years ago. Mine is the Bordeaux version (réf: 158053). I think it has lovely lines. There is more information about the Chapron cars at the Citroenet site...

Here is a photo of the real thing (Source).
