Nicky/Dinky Toys 239 Vanwall Racing Car. Metallic red version. Very near mint/boxed. Scarce. From The Berlin 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 really very close to mint example finished in a rich metallic red with original silver details, blue plastic driver, steering wheel. Original sliver details. Black plastic one-piece tyres/wheels.
Racing number 35 transfers are intact throughout.
The colourful correct box (ATAMCO P LTD. Calcutta) is colourful, clean and complete – some of the usual ‘white edges’ as is so often the case. Few creases and couple of very small tears.
