That's a USA area only Fred Bronner special I think. (No Sears in Europe)
Turns up on ebay once in a while.

That's half the fun of the old ads and MB catalogs is seeing rare color tails and low volume
production models like that Opel.
I think it had a plastic base until it got it's color change.

Your post reminds me of how different thing have become in such a short time.

Our little village had a few turn of the Century 3-4 story brick buildings, one being a Woolworths.

The second story had all the cool toys.
The ancient floor was warped and wavy like the ocean, and creaked with every step.
The floor was never painted - maybe stained once when new, so to me even at a very young age seemed like going back into the '30s.

There you could pick up the items, examine them...a tactile experience, unlike online shopping.
Sometimes you'd see a neighbor or acquaintece, also unlike online.

Face to face human contact must be at an all-time low. You can thank Facebook for that too.
