What a find! An endearing reminder of a bygone age, the real ‘£100’ Ford Saloon was produced in Dagenham, during 1938. This diminutive version measures just 8.5 cms.
A real survivor and a particularly hard find version to source in this distinctive beige colour. Shiny radiator. Couple of little tarnished areas to the intact bumpers. Shiny wheels. Original white tyres (couple of tyre flat spots). Little break to one wheel arch.
Pre-war issue so note the SHELL Petrol Can on one of the running boards.
With original key. Working clockwork motor.
Few marks to the finish.
Nice to see that the buff card box is present, although one of the end flaps is reproduction.
Few light stains and a little storage puncture. Wear besides. Print is clear and strong.
