More information on the Speed of the Wind toy from Dinky toys

This diecast model was produced both before and after WW2 in a variety of colour schemes, some of which are shown in the pics above. Pre-war examples can be identified by unridged metal wheels (same goes for many pre/post war Dinkys) and lack of metal bases. The blue one (repainted) above has no base and plain wheels, the red (silver stripe) has plain wheels but a riveted base. The all-over silver and the all-over red examples are both postwar and date to the 1950s, code 23E, and can be identified by their wheels which contain a clear ridge to them, as can other models of that time such as the Mercedes GP racing cars.

Measures: 105mm in length. Approximate value 12-18 postwar, 20-25 pre-war

Colour: various, solid metal hubs, rubber tyres, fixed driver
