Rarissime Berliet Dauphine 1939, combination of Peugeot 402 with spécific front and Berliet/engine chassis.
Only 200 produced, therefore it's a chance to see it in this picture :)

This is interesting, I didn't know Berliet did such things with Peugeots.

Yes, this car is not very known, and I learned that in the 80's when I built many 1/43rd scale model kit and built one. I don't remember the make of this model (Automany? Rekord? ...)... in the meanwhile, I was (already) smoking particularly Gauloises Blue Way, representing this car (I learned that when I bought this model-kit)

I think, I still have somewhere in my haouse an empty packet of these cigarettes :)

Searching on the net this 1/43rd scale model-kit, I dindn't find any...but I found that Heller as made it as well, but at 1/24th scale. I didn't know that.

In 1/43 I would really like to built something like this too. Especially, that I always liked "small" Hellers. 1/24 is too big for my painting skills ;)

It exists, but I saw it in a Paris model shop long time ago and it was very expensif.

I liked very much the 1/43rd scale plastic model kits, and I had built almost whole range available of it at this time:
Renault 4CV
Peugeot 203
Peugeot 403
Citroën 11BL
Citroën 2CV
Austin Princess
Rover 3500 (SD1)
Mini MkIII
Alfa Romeo Alafasud
BMW 630 Coupé
VW K70
Alpine A310
Jaguar XJS Coupé
... and the Land Rover 109" Series III , the single model that I didn't sell (for my "souvenirs" )
an excellent model , except the tires :D

From those Hellers, you have mentioned, I also had (still have hidden ;) ):
4CV, 203, 403, 11BL, 2CV, Mini and Land Rover with bad tires. ;)
+
DS19
R5 Turbo
MB SL R107
Lancia Beta MC
Citroen CX 2400 Rallye - unfortunately I was young and stupid and made it as civilian version. :/

The last two, I bought in the mid-90's, when they were already not available since long time. With CX I was lucky I accidentally found it in mint condition in the Citroen showroom in my neighborhood. Since workers didn't know a lot about model cars it was cheaper than box of matches. As bonus, they even let me to sit in a real 1:1 SM (their "mascot" in this time ;) ), which was normally closed. The same car we probably have on the site: /vehicle_112938-Citroen-SM-1971.html (ok - it was OT :D )

And I forgot the CX 2200 in my heller set ;)
I liked it too as I had painted it with genuine Citroen paint (sort of green that I don't remember the number/reference)
