French Dinky 1414 Renault R8 Gordini. Near mint plus/boxed. Scarce model from The Eric Slager Collection with unapplied racing number labels and number plates.
A striking French Dinky Renault model – and one that does not seem to come up for sale that often!
Finished in a distinctive shade of mid-blue with white stripes and bright concave wheels. Original ‘Dunlop’ tyres (fine tread) are well-shaped. Complete with driver, all four jewelled lights and bright silver trim, Tiniest wear to the white strip.
Minute scrutiny will find a mere dot or two to the paint finish.
Nice to see that this item comes with the sheet containing the unapplied racing numbers, and number plates (no Gordini label). Small transfer (or similar) residue at the roof edge driver’s side toward the rear and a small area on the boot (may be possible to carefully clean off).
The pictorial box is complete and vividly-coloured with all end flaps intact. Minor age wear and a small storage indentation at an edge.
