Dinky 952 Vega Major Luxury Coach

Ref: 35850

NEW ARRIVAL  
Good, Box Poor

Price: 29.00


This is a large, imposing model of a 49-seater (yes, I counted them!) luxury coach from the 1960s. In light cream with blue interior and maroon and silver side flashes on foil labels. The model has an opening rear luggage compartment and jewelled headlights, but its main claim to fame is the battery-operated flashing indicator lights. As you push the model forward and press down on one side or the other, the front wheels steer and operate a switch to illuminated the indicator bulb on the appropriate side. They are made to flash by a switch operated by a cam on the rear axle. A mechanical system from before the days of micro electronics and LEDs!

This one is in fair-to-good condition with only a few small chips and marks, and a little corrosion around the battery retainer. The side labels are excellent. The edge of the roof is slightly bent on one side near the rear skylight - see picture. The indicator lamp system has been tested and is working, all it needs is an AA battery, but be aware that the contacts may need cleaning from time to time. The model comes in its original box which is very worn and is missing one end flap and one inner flap.

Length: 242mm.
