Y4-3 1909 Opel Coupe

Issued 1967 Scale 1:38 navigation buttons
Withdrawn - orig.price 0.22
Available Box Types
 

According to the details on the box, this early Opel was intended as a 'doctor's car' and it is not hard to imagine a country physician driving this car on the way to visit a patient.

During our time period this model was only issued in white with a tan roof. The plastic components were either bright red or maroon. The radiator grille was usually bright red although the grill on the first issue was maroon. This model is fairly common although those with a tan textured roof, rather than the more common smooth version, are in the extremely rare category. If you spot one of these be sure to check its authenticity. The tan roof was also fitted to the connoisseur collection models but can be identified by the 'Limited Edition' cast to the underside of the roof.

The roof was originally attached using body pins but was later attached to the seats. The model shown in the picture is issue 3 which has the body pins. I also have the later issue 7 which has the roof attached to the seats

The main issues can be found at prices between 10 and 20 although the first issue is a little more expensive. Expect to pay well over 250 for the textured roof variations.
