Dinky Toys 168; Singer Gazelle; Grey Over Green, Spun Hubs

Dinky Cars England
 

The Gazelle was the first Singer to be produced following the take-over of the Singer company by the Rootes Group in 1956 and was a version of the mainstream Hillman Minx differing mainly in retaining the Singer overhead cam engine. Externally the only significant difference was a restyled nose based around a traditional Singer grille. The new car was announced in late September 1956.

The body style followed by the Gazelle between 1956 and 1967 came to be known as the "Audax" body, with significant input from the US based Loewy design organisation, highly regarded at the time partly on account of Loewy's input to several iconic Studebaker designs.

The Dinky Gazelle was released in 1958 and remained in the range until 1963. It is either grey over green or cream over brown, always with spun hubs and windows, no interior or suspension.

This Dinky was sourced in August 2013 from Lacy Scot & Knight auctioneers
