Volkswagen 1300 Sedan De-Luxe - 129

 

This is Dinky showing that they can do what Corgi can do and it's a very attractive model. Maybe the modelling is not quite so sharp as Corgi at their peak and the engineering is certainly less good, especially the hinge on the engine cover. This model spanned 1965 to 1975. At the start of its run it would have been very much second best to Corgi. By 1975 the tables had turned completely.

My example is a nice early example with traditional wheels. I like it a lot.
