Dinky Toys 233 Cooper Bristol Racing Car
Cooper Bristol Racing Car by Dinky Toys, No. 233. Near mint plus/boxed. Scarce version with red plastic wheels. REVERSED Base. From The Cologne Collection.
Made between 1954-60, this classic racing car has a bright green finish and late red plastic wheels, light grey treaded tyres are well-shaped.
Baseplate is reversed (as fitted in the factory). Driver’s head has the usual little mark and note that the fuel cap has had a later dab of green paint. Little mark or two and a couple of minor rubs to the racing numbers.
Correctly presented in the light yellow (late) pictorial card box. Crisp feel. A little ‘foxing’/grubbiness and light wear.
