This model is the Tomte Laerdal #10 Peugeot 403 Cabriolet in red.

Tomte Laerdal vehicles are made from a soft plastic and often appear to be copies of vehicles manufactured by Corgi, Solido and Dinky. They nearly always have at least the addition of a driver and sometimes passengers to the casting. They have no opening parts and almost all cabriolets have a soft, clear plastic windscreen.

All wheels are of a soft rubber or plastic compound in one piece shaped to represent a hub and tyre and fitted to dome head metal axles.

This model looks to be a copy of a Solido #108 Peugeot 403 Cabriolet complete with driver figure.

There is no base plate but the interior of the vehicle is imprinted with "10" below what would be the underside of the front seat.

This model was produced in the 1960s.
