Solido 1/43 Diecast Lionelville 1950 Chevy Taxi

We've got a new entry into the Lionel vehicle line-up today: Solido from France. Solido is known for their line of highly detailed diecast cars and trucks and it's no surprise that they would have done something in Lionel livery. This is a real nice addition to the Lionelville fleet, a taxi, which of course one needs to pick-up or drop off passengers at the Lionel station. My sample (as well as the rest I'll be featuring here in the next week or so) has no box, but has weathered being in storage quite well. It measures  4 1/2" (11.43cm) L x 1 5/8" (4.12cm) W x 1 5/8" (4.12cm) H. The number appearing under the chassis "05-86" I'm assuming is a production date. If it is, then this car was made in 1985 and wasn't part of the glut of vehicles to hit the market for Lionel's 100th birthday in 2000. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
