French Dinky 25R
French Dinky 25R Studebaker Breakdown Truck. 2nd issue with 'DINKY SERVICE' lettering. Very near mint/not individually boxed. Scarce! 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.
The owner tells us:
“This model, I believe, was originally purchased from Jean-Michel Roulet, author of ‘Histoire Des Dinky Toys Français’ (1978) & ‘Les Dinky Toys et Dinky Supertoys Français’ (1984).
A scarce item, this Studebaker Truck has an original deep red lustrous finish with jib and hook, and complete ‘DINKY SERVICE’ lettering on both sides.
Bright baseplate with spare wheel stowed. Original tyres are smooth and well-shaped generally( one is a little out of shape now). Just a couple of mere dots to the paint finish.
