Dinky 151

The Dinky Le Mans Racing Cars. Dinky have mis-described the set as the Connaught streamliner (far left) and the Mercedes Benz streamliner (far right), are not actually sports racing cars and so never raced at Le Mans. Connaught and Mercedes Benz did run cars at Le Mans (the latter only in 1955 when the team retired after Levegh's fatal crash in one of the team car), but not the ones in the 151 set which are both 2.5 litre Formula 1 cars. It was available in grey blue green white finish.
