Pic of the Day 4 September, 2005 Aspro Medical Support Vehicles

Beginning in 1951, Aspro (bottled aspirin tablets) provided medical support vehicles for the Tour de France. Here's a line-up of their various vehicles for 1961, including a helicopter!


I've found three of the vehicles in miniature, all produced by Norev of France. I don't have any of them yet, so I've had to beg and borrow these images from various websites.

First, the Renault D3A, year not certain. Note the canoe-shaped sign on the roof:


Second, the Citroen DS, scene here in 1964 livery:


And finally, the famous Aspro Simca "Ocean":


There are other pics in the same album:
