It is in a VERY tight box, which made me think there was probably only one box for all the models they made -- but it turns out they only made this model. Some sources have said that there was a second model planned which never made it. Some sources say that this model was made in 1969. The box says that it is "Made in France under exclusive U.S. rights." There is a LOT of text on the box, and strangely it maes a reference to "During the race WE broke 19 existing speed marks" (emphasis mine).
The car I bought also had the decal sheet included (unused). All in all, it's a nice little car, and it's too bad that there weren't other models.
The models are made of resin, and very nicely detailed, if you don't look too closely. Too find a model to begin with, however, you will have to look closely. I did find an Econoline van online, a listing for a 1930 Cord L29 Weyman Coupé, 1951 Mercury Convertible, and a Citroen DS 19 four door.
Fun Ho! (New Zealand)
Probably any Fun Ho (I'm going to drop the exclamation point for the rest of this article -- it gets annoying) you'll run across these days is actually a reproduction -- or would you call it a reissue? At any rate, not the original.
