French Dinky Toys 24UT Simca Taxi
Simca Aronde Elysee Taxi by French Dinky Toys, No. 24UT. Very near mint/never individually boxed. MATTE version with RED PAINTED CONVEX WHEELS. From The Berlin Collection.
A pleasing finish on this Simca Taxi model, hard to find this good, especially considering that these taxi models were never individually boxed. Obviously a cherished Dinky that has lost none of its lustre:
Issued between 1956-58 with a sleek matte finish and red painted convex wheels.
Bright baseplate and metal parts generally including the axle ends. Well-shaped original tyres have no flat spots.
Very close to mint condition.
For comparison, please take a look at this model with a more matte finish, on the right:
