Dinky Toys 268 Renault Dauphine Minicab
Renault Dauphine Minicab By Dinky Toys, No. 268. Very, very near mint/boxed, with perspex packing strip.. Early version with LONDON TAXI box print. From The Reference Collection.
One of our favourite Dinky cars and an increasingly difficult find. This example is virtually mint with a vivid original deep red finish and eye-catching detailed advertising transfers throughout.
Presents well with a fine lustre.
Just one minuscule transfer nick to the rear bumper (due to the raised boot detail).
The early red and yellow picture box is bright and complete. With LONDON TAXI print – later this detail would be covered with a label and LONDON TAXI not mentioned.
With perspex packing strip.
Issued between 1962-67.
