Notes

Probably the rarest of the Atlantic colours, this version in vivid scarlet red with maroon interior and matching wheels is surely one of the best surviving examples; indeed, only the third we have ever offered for sale.

This model has such a pleasing gleaming original finish! Smooth-running original tyres too.
Bright original silver trim. A few little chips as one might expect for what is essentially an unboxed model some 65 years or so old. this model would have been sold from a Dinky Trade Box by the shopkeeper.
Shiny base has some ‘spidering’.
Under the closest scrutiny, one will a couple of little extra dabs of (factory) paint.
A remarkable find, this version rarely comes to the market place.
