DINKY GIFT SET No. 4 ‘Racing Cars’ (1950’s)

Out of stock

£0.00

Dinky Toys Gift Set No. 4 (Racing Cars) is one of the most desirable and collectable 1950’s Dinky Gift Sets. The set we have for sale, pictured on this page, comes complete with all five original Dinky racing cars (Maserati, Cooper Bristol, Ferrari, HWM and Alfa Romeo) in a very high-quality replica box.

The cars are all in very good condition with only minor wear, and totally original. (A full condition report for each car can be seen by clicking on the ‘Additional Information’ tab below).

The box is a professionally manufactured, high-quality replica of an original box, complete with cardboard inserts. It is printed on the correct grade of card and is virtually indistinguishable from the original.

This set of cars with their original box in good condition would probably sell for twice the price, so while an original box is always desirable, this set represents fantastic value.

Additional photographs are available on request.
