Norev Peugeot 407 - available as a sedan, coupe AND station wagon!
Amazingly, once in a while you CAN...! Norev made the same Peugeot 407 available in 3 different body styles - sedan, coupe and station wagon! And they almost made them all in the same color - I've got 2 of the 3 bodies in red and 2 in light gold.
I picked these models up when I was in Paris 6 years ago - at a Peugeot dealership. They are nice models - with metal bases and nice detail. The trailer hitches are overly large - making the monstrous Majorette hitches seem tiny in comparison, and the wheels leave a little to be desired. But overall they are great models. Enjoy the photos!
PS. To be fair, Matchbox did actually make multiple body styles in at least 2 recent models... In the case of the E46 3 series, Matchbox did a coupe version (I have it in silver) and a sedan version (but only as a police car). The Cadillac CTS was also available as a wagon and a coupe.... Both potential subjects of a future blog entry.
