Mercedes-Benz Taxi by Nicky/Dinky Toys, No. 051. Very near mint/boxed. From The Reference Collection.

Price: £195.00


Sought-after models that are so difficult to find in good condition! Dinky dies were sold to the Indian Firm S. Kumar & Co. trading as Atamco. (1968-70). Often known as Indian-Dinky toys, the finish was poor in comparison.

This Mercedes model is black with a yellow roof and a complete ‘Taxi’ sign on the roof, original silver trim and a complete bonnet emblem. One-piece silver and black plastic wheels/tyres. No product number on base but ‘Kumar & Co Licensee India’ visible.
In very close to mint.



The box is complete and brightly-coloured, and there is a small area of surface loss on an end flap.
Unusual item.
