Dinky brought this one out in 1953, Maserati had been racing it since 1938 and had dropped it the previous year (1952), Dinky however flogged it until 1964, 26 years after it had first raced. It is always red, it always has a white flash on the top of the bonnet, but the wheels varied over the years and when in 1954 Meccano decided to box their cars individually rather than to sell them from trays of half a dozen, you got box variations which affect value.

As the model got long in the tooth sales fell away so late releases are scarce, those slow selling latecomers have either red or yellow plastic hubs, these, when boxed, are worth serious cash.

   

Red, red painted hubs, white nose flash,9 in white, mottled base, (231)
