Regular readers will know that I am a fan of big JDM bruisers. I am not a regular collector of Tomica Limited Vintage models, but I like what I see.
And this a good example.The Nissan Cedric Special 6. The Garage has been a little over run with a few K430 Cedric’s so it is time some old skool made an appearance.
Launched in October 1965, the distinguishing feature of the second-generation model (130) was its prestigious style, designed by the Italian carrozzeria, Pininfarina. The Special 6 anticipated the era of high-speed transport by using a 6-cylinder in line OHC engine (L20); it also had disc brakes fitted as standard. In September 1968, the front end and rear end were significantly redesigned, after which it was referred to as the “late model”.
It is a lovely casting – I am impressed with the way the wheels have been created – not easy on such a scale.
I normally try to find superlatives to talk about these models, but there is very little more to say. All the usual facets are there and applied.
Very happy with this one, And rightly deserves a place with the Garage.
