--24t and 535 Citroën 2 CV (1952-1963)

   It is hard to believe that there are no prior postings, so I will contribute what I can about this vintage French Dinky Model.  The Dinky Toys Citroen 2CV was modeled after a well-loved car, made for many years in France.  The Dinky model was introduced in 1952, and lasted untll 1963....a lengthy run for an automobile!  The basic model changed little over that time, and originally appeared numbered 24T, which was changed to the new French numbering system in 1959 to 535.  I have two Dinky models, both purchased back in the late 1950's from H.Hudson Dobson, and fortunately, both have survived all that time in quite good condition.  My first one is actually the second type, and was made from 1953 to about 1957, and what distinguishes it from later versions are two items: (1).  The rear of the car only shows one taillight, located in the middle, above the rear bumper.  (2).  It also has the smooth ceiling inside the car....later versions had the familiar checkered pattern cast into the ceiling.  The color is grey, with a dark grey, matt finished roof, and cream wheels.  My second model is the later version, which now includes a total of 3 taillights....the original one in the center, plus another on both the right and left side.  And it now also features the checkered ceiling.  My earlier version did not come with a box, so I believe they only came in trade boxes early on.  My second one does have its own box, but shows only one color, and not the dark red that mine is.  Below are some photos of the models, as well as some catalog images.

                 Best regards,  Terry

Re : --24t and 535 Citroën 2 CV (1952-1963)

A very nice and accurate little model. The only thing that has always annoyed me - and somehow spoilt everything good on the model - are the for over 50% hidden rear wheels, whereas in reality over 50% of them were visible, this vehicle standing so characteristically high on its rear wheels (unless it was overloaded, which admittedly very often happened). Still, Terry, you have some wonderful examples of this model. Kind regards, Jan
