Dinky Cars England

The Humber Vogue was a pillarless coupe based on the Humber Twelve in the early 1930s. It came out of the absorption of Humber into the Rootes Group in 1929 and owes something to the contemporary Hillman Minx. Dinkys of this period are not very faithful replicas of the cars they represent, and if you can find a picture of the full size car it is very elegant, with that falling away waistline.

Dinky released it in 1937 complete with driver and footman. There was a pause in production in 1941 as the factory was switched over to war work. When it was resumed in 1946 the figures had gone - so hard to get servants after the war.  Production continued until 1950.
