Thanks for your hints. This model is older,, its 1/43. and is white metal.
I'm amazed on how close both the John Day and Provence Moulage models are to mine. But discounting paint and decals, there are casting differences. Subtly, but there. Its easier for me as I can hold the model up to the screeen and pick out details. Little things, like two taillights, not 4, and a plain baseplate. Then there is the real hard to see in photos, there is a raised ridge on mine like tiny bumpers not showing on the Day or PM model. Plus, mine is not diecast or reson, but white metal. It has a Pesicion Miniatures look/feel to it and has white wall tires, though mostly hidden.

Thakns for your help, these older models are hard to find much info on.
