Notes

It is always thrilling to find South African Dinky models. So difficult to come by, especially in authentic condition and in the correct box. The model colours are always unusual and markedly different from the standard U.K issues too.
This Ramber model is finished in a distinctive olive (or sage) green with a vivid red detailed interior, cream steering wheel, shiny spun wheels, white treaded tyres, shiny chrome bumpers (complete).
