Nicky 239

Nicky/Dinky Toys 239 Vanwall Racing Car. Silver version. Very near mint/boxed (little puncture). Scarce. From The Eric Slager Collection.


Price: £120.00



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.
