Saab 96 - 156

 

A model from the great era of Dinky modelling in the early 60s, just spoilt by the chrome monstrosity on its front end, there is just too much of it and it would have looked far better with a traditional die-cast solution.

It is a model of the SAAB 96 from the mid sixties. Originally a two-stroke with 850ccs this car ended its production with a Ford 1500cc V4. Throughout though it was known for performance, toughness and safety. In the early 60s it had a lot of rallying success in the RAC Rally and the Monte Carlo.

The Dinky SAAB 96 was released in 1968 and remained in the range until 1971. It was always metallic red and there are no listed rare versions, however it is a sought after model and will always demand a good price.
