I see Dapol aren't mentioned in this thread.
They are best known for taking over the old Airfix [ex Rosebud] railway kits, but they also used to do Veteran/Vintage car kits. I have, I think, 4 of the car kits. waiting to be built.

The antique cars were the Gowland & Gowland tooling that were famous for launching the hobby kit portion of Revell when these appeared about 1951 through 1956 as the Highway Pioneer series. AIRFIX also molded a limited range from the Gowland tooling and several companies did knockoffs. Minicraft owned the Highway Pioneer name and tooling for a while in the 80s and Revell Germany also did a commemorative release of several gifts sets.
