Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Renault Fregate 1959 Blue The Fregate was launched by Renault in 1950 as a car for the middle classes as France recovered from the war. The styling at the rear is similar to the smaller 4CV which predated it by a couple of years and like its smaller sibling this was to be rear engined, but a late change saw a more conventional power train. The car modelled is a late example with a much simplified front grille and other trim updates. Much of the body trim is painted or tampo printed, but it is all neatly done, the main blue paint is excellent and the simple shape is well modelled.
Prolific maker of die-casts, most subjects having a French conection. Particularly good for concept cars and design studies. Made in China/France
