French Dinky Toys 24V Buick Roadmaster

Issued in various colour finishes between 1954-59 before its brief re-numbering to 538. This is one of the most difficult of the 2nd type versions to find – model is finished in butter lemon-yellow with a deep green roof, silver trim, shiny convex hubs, white tyres. Pleasing lustre:
Shiny base and smooth-running white tyres.
Hard to find in this virtually mint state.
Pictorial box is complete, and brightly-coloured, with no graffiti. Light wear. Crisp feel.
