Dinky Toys 57/004 Oldsmobile 88

A scarce model – and one of the small range of cars made by Dinky in Hong Kong, largely between 1965-67. All are 1:42 scale.
Attractively finished in white with a light blue roof, red interior. Complete number plates front and rear. Shiny spun wheels have suspension on the front wheels only (common fault). Model still sits well.
Close to mint condiiton. Minute scrutiny finds a few little extra flicks of white paint.
The colourfully illustrated card box has a detailed picture of the car and a scenic backdrop. Shopkeeper’s price at one end. Little wear to one end flap (small tear) and a couple of little scuffs.
These Hong Kong Dinky cars are becoming increasingly difficult to find.
