Dinky Toys 156
Dinky 156 Rover 75 Saloon. Mid-blue and cream. Large print baseplate & treaded tyres. Very, very near mint/boxed. Fresh box! Scarce. From The West Midlands Collection.
This most eye-catching Rover Saloon has a virtually perfect mid-blue and cream finish (negligible mark or two). Issued between 1956-59.
Note that this example has the large print and 156 on the baseplate. Treaded tyres.
The pictorial box is really fresh and bright – presents so well. A little surprise when one large end flap is opened – there is a period handwritten note dated 24-12-1964.
Two-tone cars from this period in this condition are always highly sought.
