Renault Estafette 1968 elevated et Estafette Race Assistance.

Comments

The wheels are clearly too big and the tyres are flattened because of the display fastening system too tighte. The bumpers were sloped because they were badly snapped in, but were easily repositioned.

The grille is too wide and its lower edge is straight, while it is not in reality (visible in the photo despite the presence of additional projectors).

The Race Assistance model does not seem to comply. The actual vehicle pictures show a newer type, with wraparound bumpers including footboards, like this one posted on museeducamion.com.
