A racing car series issued by DINKY TOYS first in 1934, they were a popular hit throughout the 1930s.
The first series of six vehicles were labelled 22A, 22B, 22C .... up to 22f which included a sports car, sports coupe, delivery van, truck, tank and a tractor. These scale models were made of lead.
The next series was numbered 23 i.e. 23A, 23B, etc. and were made from Zamac. It was fitted with 'Dunlop' like tyres all of which were novelties then. This series was labelled the Racing Car series.
This scale model is an exact rendition of the original Racing Car model.
This metal scale model is a rendition of the original DINKY TOYS, a brand first sold in 1934. The manufacturer has tried to recreate the old-world magic by retaining the same features on each metal model as well as its box.
Dinky Toys were sold in India until 1955 when they were imported. Then in 1963 Meccano (owners of the brand) sold their factory to a firm in Calcutta called S. Kumar & Co. who started producing them locally. But because the finishing of these products were so poor they were sold as NICKY products.
