Dinky 197 Mini-Traveller. RARE with AUSTIN GRILLE. Very near mint/boxed. From The Berkshire Collection Part 2. Please see our Blog on this tranche of the collection.
A rare version fit to grace any Dinky collection, this Mini-Traveller model is finished in ivory with a vivid red interior, bright wheels and a matt baseplate. Extremely rare to find fitted with an Austin (and not a Morris) grille!
In virtually mint condition with just a tiny dot on the bonnet and a very fine light mark on the windscreen (being extra-fussy here). Few tiny marks besides.
The standard pictorial box is clean with a crisp feel and all end flaps intact. Only the most minor wear and a shopkeeper’s penned period price at an end flap.
Extremely scarce variant.
