Jensen heritage for the next generation

DINKY JENSEN FF FIRST ISSUE – £65

Item description: Undoubtedly the most iconic model of the Jensen FF, is the Dinky 188 in yellow. This example is the first issue with clear stiff perspex lid. At the beginning of production, the 188 Jensen FF was supplied in good quality long lasting packaging, with a solid clear plastic moulding over the top of the model (later production had a much thinner vacuum formed lid which easily split). The base has provision to hold the model in place and is made from card over a plastic underbody. This particular model has the ‘MTB 21G’ registration numbers

 

Condition report: Overall excellent condition. Slight age associated cracking to the perspex lid. The model free from damage and probably period unused.

 

Background to Dinky: Dinky Toys are die-cast zamac miniature vehicles produced by Meccano Ltd. Dinky Toys in England were made between 1935 to 1979. The factory was at Binns Road, Liverpool, England. Arguably, Dinky Toys (possibly as well as Solido), were the most notable diecast vehicles ever produced.
