Dinky Toys 40d/152; Austin Devon Saloon

Dinky Cars England

The A40 Devon (and similar 2-door A40 Dorset) were automobiles marketed by the Austin Motor Company from 1947 to 1952 the first post-war saloons to be produced by Austin featuring a mix of old and new technologies. They were first seen by the UK Press at their preview of the Paris Motor Show on 22 October 1947 when they expressed immediate disappointment at its conservative appearance. Austin manufactured more than 450,000 examples before replacement in 1952 by the Austin A40 Somerset.

The Dinky was made from 1949 to 1959. It was first numbered 40d and sold from trays of 6 unboxed items. In 1954 it was renumbered to 152 and sold from individual boxes. There is a wide range of colours, unboxed values are fairly low as there are a lot of them out there.
