Dinky Toys 100 Lady Penelope's FAB 1
Lady Penelope's Fab 1 by Dinky Toys, No. 100. Very near mint/boxed. Sought-after earliest issue in non-fluorescent pink, with pink roof stripes. With RAISED CENTRAL WHEEL SECTION, 'Mustang-style' wheels. With accessories. From The Marc Mulvale Collection.
Inspired by the Gerry Anderson Thunderbirds T.V. series from the ’60’s. This Fab 1 model is finished in non-fluorescent pink, with pink stripes on the sliding roof. Version with protruding central section of the wheels or sometimes called ‘Mustang-style’. Earliest wheel variation for the Fab 1.
Gold interior and both original seated figures of Lady Penelope and Parker. It comes complete with an intact bonnet emblem, jewelled headlights and complete front & rear number plates (age wear to rear plate).
The Fab 1 is in original condition, with barely a mark to the paint finish. Some tarnishing to metal parts.
The car comes with a firing rocket and four rear harpoons. Tested – and working well!
The colourful card stand is bright, clean and complete with both pull tabs. Some rubbing and light wear as well as a corner crumple.
The pictorial card box is clean and very brightly-coloured, complete with all end flaps. Tear to the tuck-on part of one large end flap. A little age/handling wear includes a small scuff.
One of the most sought-after Gerry Anderson inspired Dinky models!
