French Dinky 32AB Panhard Articulated Lorry 'S.N.C.F.' Very near mint/boxed. *Scarce version with each first letter in blue-green and darker green background to map*. One of the choice items from the Heart of England collection!
What a fine Dinky model this is – and surely one of the nicest to come out of the French Dinky factory. This version was produced between 1954-59, before its re-numbering to FD575 in 1959. A beautiful and unused example with a sleek deep blue finish and painted ridged wheels. Perfect eye-catching logo and lettering on both sides. Do note that this scarce version has the first letter in each word in blue-green. Green background to the map is darker too. Shiniest metal parts (including the axle ends). Smooth supple original tyres, with spare stowed.
With minute examination, you will find a small (box) rub at a rear wheel arch and a couple of extremely faint of scratches on the tinplate tilt. Tiny mark low down on one side of the cab. Being extra fussy here!
Nice original lustre throughout makes this a superb dispaly piece. Obviously unused.
The box is complete, clean and vividly-coloured. Very minor wear including the tiniest start of an end flap tear.
A classic Dinky model which displays so well!
