French Dinky 24V
French Dinky 24V Buick Roadmaster. Very near mint/boxed. Scarce 2nd type in LEMON YELLOW, dark green. With leaflet. Nice box! From The Phillips Collection.
Acknowledged in ‘The Great Book Of Dinky Toys’, this collector in the U.S. brings his 37 year collection to QDT. Included are some very rare items and a wealth of period literature and catalogues.
Issued in various colour finishes between 1954-59 before its brief re-numbering to 538. This is one of the most difficult of the 2nd type versions to find – model is finished in lemon-yellow with a deep green roof, silver trim, convex hubs, white tyres. A pleasing, all original example:
Barely a mark to the paint finish. The original smooth white tyres are rather grubby now.
Pictorial box is very crisp, clean and fresh. Tiny wear only.
Includes a little French Dinky promotional slip:
A difficult version to find.
