Range Rover Ambulance - 268
This toy is more than 30 years old, but you would think it had been bought
yesterday. It is in remarkable condition. It is another version of the
excellent Dinky model of the early 2 door classic Range Rover. This is one
of the ones that Dinky did better than Corgi. Corgi did an ambulance too,
and it's not at all bad, but this one has more presence - follow this link
to look at the Corgi -
The Corgi only has an opening back - so the Dinky scores by having opening
bonnet & doors, and the Dinky is nearer 1:43 scale where the Corgi looks
about 1:50. But the Corgi does have opening panels where the rear side
windows should be, although it did come out during Corgi's decline and is
probably bought in anyway.
One other point worth noting is that both the Dinky and the Corgi appear to
be carrying the same patient.
