Nicky/Dinky Toys 239 Vanwall Racing Car. Silver version. Very near mint/boxed (little puncture). Scarce. From The Eric Slager Collection.
Sought after models that are so difficult to find in good condition! Dinky dies were sold to the Indian Firm S. Kumar & Co. trading as Atamco. (1968-70). Often known as Indian-Dinky toys, the finish was poor in comparison.
A very close to mint example finished in silver, blue plastic driver, steering wheel. Black plastic one-piece tyres/wheels.
Racing number 35 (complete).
Little rough casting and note the two stray drips of glue near the driver’s seat ( seems that the original steering wheel has been re-glued into place at some time).
The colourful correct box (ATAMCO P LTD. Calcutta) is colourful, clean and complete. Little puncture caused by the driver’s head has pressed back into place. Light wear/ ruffling.
