The Dinky Ferrari Racing Car. In April 1953, the Meccano Magazine announced the launch of Dinky Toys’ Ferrari, 23H. The 4 inch (102mm) long model had a driver, with white painted overall and helmet, integral to the casting and was finished in blue and yellow, the national racing colours of Argentina. Like other models in the series, the Ferrari had sturdy axle mountings, ribbed wheel hubs and grey, 20mm tyres, with rounded treads. The race number ‘5’ on either side of the rear cowling. The model cost 3/-, although by August 1953, the price had fallen to 2/11. In 1954, Dinky renumbered the model, 234, and the model remained in production until 1964, when it was replaced by the Ferrari, ‘shark-nose’, model 242. The original price was 3/- . It was available in blue & yellow finish at 1:38 scale. Released as Dinky 23H in 1953 withdrawn as Dinky 23H in 1964.
