DINKY 485 SANTA SPECIAL MODEL T FORD (1964-1967):
Dinky #485 Santa Special Model T Ford, produced between 1964 and 1967, was the very first ‘Special’ made by Dinky. Until then all the models had been based on actual vehicles and this turned out to be the start of many new and very profitable additions to the range.
The car was based on the 475 Ford Model ‘T’ 1908 car which was introduced in the same year. Co-incidentally amongst the the very last Specials that Dinky made, the 120 Happy Cab, also used the 475 Ford Model ‘T’ chassis.
The model made its first appearance in the 1966 catalogue.
