Dinky Toys 169; Ford Corsair 2000E; Silver Metallic, Black Roof

Dinky Cars England
 

The Corsair was designed around a lengthened Cortina Mark 1 floor pan, and shared many of its mechanical and body components with the Cortina. The Corsair had unusual and quite bold styling for its day, with a sharp horizontal V-shaped crease at the very front of the car into which round headlights were inset. This gave the car an apparently aerodynamic shape. The jet-like styling extended to the rear where sharply pointed vertical light clusters hinted at fins. The overall styling was clearly inspired by the early 1960s Ford Thunderbird, though in transferring the look to a British family car, the overall effect is something of an acquired taste - so says Wikipedia, I always thought it was very stylish.

This is a 2 door 2000E, I think these were never sold in the UK where we had mostly 4 door cars, except I think for the entry level models.

This Dinky was sourced in January 2017 from a private collection, the box is reproduction.
