Peugeot 505

The 1:36 scale Peugeot 505 was released in red and red with silver lower body under the old Corgi Toys brand, in a set with a caravan and as a Tour de France cycle race support car. There were some releases in the post-Mettoy era and I believe the Pompiers version below to be one of these - and the Cycle Race Support car
