Renwal #60 Coupe 1948-49 Bronze HP

We've got a bunch of vintage vehicles to post this year and they'll be comin' just as soon as I can  take and edit photos! Today's vehicle isn't a Nifty '50s toy but a Fab '40's selection, Renwal's #60 Coupe from 1948-49. Classic lines, a beautiful dark bronze color, and a hefty dose of nostalgia makes this a winner for any toy car collector. It measures 4 1/4" (10.8cm) L x 1 3/8" (2.9cm) W x 1/3/8" (2.9cm) H. Enjoy!

Apparently this was modeled after the Buick 1939 Y-Job, "The World's First Concept Car" which was famed auto stylist Harley Earl's personal ride:

here it is posed with a Bachmann Plasticville Service Station, and as a bonus I've included a scan of the cardboard insert.
