I am not sure if the previous owner was going to enter this into a banger derby but good solid model bad paint job, needed a restoration. Original paint was olive green. Axles cut, paint stripped, new headlamps fitted and ready for the paint shop.../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/1.jpg ../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/2.jpg ../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/3.jpg ../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/4.jpg ../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/5.jpg ../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/6.jpg ../content/H4/Packard Super 8 Touring Saloon (H468)/images/7.jpg

noimage noimage Remember those toys cars from your childhood, or perhaps your fathers or grandfathers toys. They are very collectable now even in poor condition. I have been restoring them to give them a new lease of life using basic tools. I am sharing some of my best tips and showing some of the restorations to help you do the same. The collections includes Dinky, Corgi and rare makes such as Toby Toys, Gilco, Gaity, Kemlow, Londontoy etc. Browse the Collection, view the catalogues, see the box and decal templates box reproductions Compare models in the extensive catalogue research page.
