Austin A105 Westminster

Dinky Cars England

A grand big old Austin saloon from the 50's. A ton and a half of car with 102bhp to speed it along. Never mind you probably had plenty of time to appreciate the nice big leather seats as you watched the world serenely roll by.

It's not high camp US or finely modelled British 60s iron - but I guess I just like it. I do have fond memories of A55 vans which everyone seemed to have and this is very similar at the front if a bit bigger and fancier. The later releases had spun hubs and part way through its life it was the first Dinky to get windows in 1959. Early releases have painted hubs, later on it got spun hubs.
