Dinky Toys 150; Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith; Light Grey over Dark Grey

Dinky Cars England
 

Yet another Dinky Rolls-Royce and another milestone model. This was the first one with suspension. It had windows but no interior detail. It was in the Dinky range from 1959 to 1964 and was always two-tone grey with spun hubs. It was also made by Dinky France under number 551 from 1959 to 1961.

I've always liked this model. It is quite large and sits really nicely in the hand. Some models just have what it takes and this is one of those. When you take detailed photos like this you see things you don't otherwise find - it has an 'R' cast into the centre of the rear bumper. Nice touch of detail.

This Dinky was sourced in September 2019 from a private collection
