French Friday: R4 de Tour de France

Another 3 inch Norev. I initially planned this one for the Tour de France last year. As Berger sirops used these as promotional vehicles in the Tour de France from 1969.

But as I had planned to get some cyclist figurines to go along with these (also from Norev) I waited out and... Still haven’t found those cyclists!

As I’ve done several posts already on the R4 I’m sure I won’t have to go into it’s history again. Just check my prior posts on it, like this one.

I can share what Berger was about though. They made syrup for lemonade. And the grille of this R4 clearly gives away it’s an early one, unlike the Heuliez I showed before. It is the same gen as the Gendarmerie R4 I showed before though.

I really love these Norev 3 Inches but you might know this already. I’ve got a bunch of really new ones coming up, like the DS23 Pallas and the HY truck/van.

So that’s it for today, I hope you’ll have a great few days off. And I hope some more French casts will be shown than just this one and Dadurling’s epic Alpine.
