Crescent Connaught toy Grand Prix car
Connaught 2.0litre G/Prix car by The Crescent Toy Co. Ltd
Connaught enjoyed some success with their Lea-Francis powered racing cars during the fifties. This model is one of my favourites, not a car ever covered by the Dinky range as far as I know. My old transporter used to occasionally transport a Connaught like this to races across the UK for R.D. Poore, when not racing his pre-war Alfa Romeo. A period photo of a Connaught at Silverstone, may be found on this page at Old Classic Car.
Measures: 100mm in length. Approximate value 25-35 GBP.
Colour: green, solid metal spoke-effect hubs, rubber tyres, loose driver, cream riveted base
