I had almost come to the conclusion that these didn’t actually exist - just illustrations in a catalogue which became an issue with cast spoke-effect wheels instead. Then a few weeks ago I saw one advertised at about £250. So it seems that some of these 304S models were, indeed, produced with wire wheels.

I can’t afford the one advertised and doubt that I’ll see any others for many years so I thought I would make one. Here is my effort, simply replacing the wheels which required no messing around with the base and so it appears all original.

Replacing the axles took a while, though, and I still cannot see hoe the suspension works but I think there is a thin metal plate that the axle slips under. For a long time I couldn’t get them to fit under or, if I thought I had one side was firm but the other soft! Eventually they just went wherever they were supposed too but there’s a warning if you were thinking that was an easy task to do!

The car itself is in super condition and, with these wheels now, looks great and will be a talking point in any collection. You could probably pass this off as totally original.
