The Dinky Midget Car Racer. The pre war version was longer with no driver.

The second in the series of small cars, a racing car has been called an MG Midget, but is more like an MG R-type, which frequently raced on the Brooklands circuit. The sports car is named as an MG midget and reflects the beginnings of a long line of cars and models bearing that name. The small cars series were at a 1:76 scale and were first issued between 1936 and 1941 and then, after the war, from 1945. Initially, each sold for 3d (pence), with the gift set of all three costing 9d.

The actual car, often referred to as the Midget racer, was more likely to have been an MG R-type, which had an overhead camshaft version of the 1928 Morris Minor and Wolseley 10 engine. The car had a supercharger and 4-speed pre-selector gearbox, Y shaped steel chassis, with wishbone and torsion bar suspension, lever arm shock absorbers and cable operated drum brakes. The original price was 3d . It was available in silver,yellow,red finish at 1:76 scale. Released as Dinky 35B in 1936 withdrawn as Dinky 35B in 1957.
