Dinky Toys 153 Standard Vanguard


Pre ordered from my own collection. Just ask for a model if not found on website.   ‘A Diecast Gem’

This is a rare and sought after 40 series model of the Standard Vanguard in all over maroon with beige ridged wheels. Rare to come to the market it is finished with smooth black original tyres, a large writing base plate and ridged hubs.
This  is a very rare colour issued at the transitional stage of renumbering in 1953. It may have been supplied in a later trade box, a dual numbered individual or 153 box with a maroon spot applied.

An amazing model in superb condition. Place 153 in search  and see the all Maroon version.

Light tested and original.
