Dinky Cars England

The pre and post war Dinky cars are very nice objects and while based on the real cars of the time are not accurate representations of them, nor were they meant to be. This is a Bentley coupe. If you bought a Bentley coupe in 1937 it would be a 4.5 litre model, like the ones which had recently cleaned up at Le Mans for several years on the trot. So that makes it a 4.5 litre.

Dinky made the car from 1937 to 1941 and resumed post war production in 1947 keeping it in the range until 1950. Pre war cars will sometimes have figures inside and/or slots cut in the baseplate to locate them, these cars will tend to have smooth hubs. Post war cars have ridged hubs and no figures. They are seen in a wide range of colours.
