It has been a while since we have offered one of these models for sale. Issued between 1968-70, this Escort car is in very close to mint, original condition with a delicate pale blue finish, bright red interior, spun wheels. Complete number plates front and rear. As-new original tyres.
Tiny mark or two (if you hunt for them!)>
The pictorial box is complete and bright. Light age/handling wear includes a small tear. Rare to find with this leaflet which insists this model is not to be sold, displayed or presented before Jan 17th 1968. We surmise that Dinky did not want to have this model on sale before the debut of the full size version in the Brussels Motor Show in January 1968!
