Majorette is a French well known diecast maker and been going for years and known for making the smaller every day cars vans and trucks that others seem to neglect, this little Renault van is no exception.

Available in red, yellow and dark blue among other colours mainly with a logo of some sort.

The majorette number is 230 and believed to be 1:55 scale.

The real Renault 4 van

The Renault 4, also known as the 4L (pronounced “Quatrelle”), is a hatchback economy car produced by the French automaker Renault between 1961 and 1992. It was the first front-wheel drive family car produced by Renault.

The car was launched at a time when several decades of economic stagnation were giving way to growing prosperity and surging car ownership in France. The first million cars were produced by 1 February 1966, less than four and a half years after launch, a commercial success for Renault because of the timing of its introduction and the merits of its design. It was exceptionally spacious for its size, and although regarded as a small estate car when launched, it is now seen as the first hatchback family car.
