Dinky 354 Pink Panther Panthermobile

Dinky 354 Pink Panther Panthermobile

Ref: 40185

Good, unboxed

Price: 14.50

Based on the one-off vehicle that was built for the opening and credit sequences of The Pink Panther TV show, originally broadcast between 1969 and 1978 - a lot of effort to go to considering the actual show consisted only of cartoons! The real vehicle was based on an Oldsmobile Toronado chassis, with the driver in an exposed cockpit forward of the engine.

This model is somewhat out of place amongst the diecasts, since its pink body and black base are actually plastic. There are opaque black windows on the sides, and the cockpit has a black seat and clear windscreen. It is complete with a Pink Panther driver figure, although in the TV series he rode inside, with a young crash helmet-wearing chauffeur at the wheel.

In the middle of the body is a flywheel, enabling the model to zoom along at great speed, hence the pink rubber nose to prevent damage to skirting boards! It would originally have been supplied with a plastic toothed pull cord to set the flywheel spinning. Unfortunately this is missing, but in other respects the model is in good condition.

Length: 175mm.
Approx Years: 1972 - 1977
