Dinky Toys 179; Studebaker President; Light Blue With Blue Side Flash, Painted Hubs

Dinky Cars England
 

Another of the excellent US models Dinky was making at the turn of the Sixties. You can see where so many British makers of the time were getting their styling cues. You can see shades of Vauxhall Victor/Cresta PA in the wing line and grille, Rootes Group Rapier & Sceptre in the line of the C pillars, a touch of Ford Zephyr around the bonnet line.

Dinky made this one from 1958 to 1963. It is either light blue with a darker blue side flash or yellow with blue. Early releases have painted hubs, later ones have spun hubs.

This Dinky was sourced before January 2004 (when I started keeping records) from Ebay
