THE DINKY TOYS COLLECTION
This is not a definitive
collection like the Great Book of Corgi section, this is a selection from the Dinky range
based on Dinkys which have passed through my business. I've divided it into fairly arbitrary chunks shown below.
The selections on the pages are not exhaustive, a reference like
Ramsay's guide will give you that if you need it, it is merely the random models which have turned up in the collections I have bought
The cars, trucks, etc shown in the pages have all passed through my on-line shop and have all been sold on to other collectors.

Fine British, European & American cars modelled in simple style, no windows, no springs and nothing opened to start with, but there was growing excitement as time went by and more features were added.
|Competition Cars||Here you will find the racers, Grand Prix and Formula 1, Rally cars, track racers and speed record cars|
|Dinky France||Meccano set up production in France in the 1930s and after the Second World War production was seriously ramped up with a range of cars and trucks represented in the range which was very different from that available in the UK|
