--40b and 151 Triumph 1800 Saloon (1948-60)

For many years, the only one that I had in my collection was a light blue one, purchased over 50 years ago. Then some time ago, I decided to find an early version, with the rear wheel supports, in grey. Then a few weeks ago, I came across a nice dark blue one to add it. And just last week, I saw a nearly mint fawn version, and it arrived today. I don't normally collect so many color variations....I have enough trouble just trying to get one very nice model of each Dinky, but I do love this Triumph.

Hi all!

40b is one of my favourite Dinky's of all time, a wondeful model.

Here are mine, I'm looking for Light Blue / Fawn Hubs and Fawn / Blue Hubs, not easy to find though!

Not very well represented in my collection, this wonderful Dinky model. Two variations shown here in fair condition (by the way, the grey one, like Terry's, is an early one of 1948, still having the solid rear axle supports, so characteristic for the 39 series, but discontinued soon after). In fact it's here about the two nice colour versions of the real one, photos taken during the Norfolk vintage car show in September 2004, when staying with David Cooke. They are real beauties! Kind regards, Jan

Jan—-Always nice to see photos of the existing cars. Even as a youngster, this was one of my favorite Dinky models....I just loved its styling. And the knife edge look still looks stunning today. Dinky made a very nice model of it, with several colors available.
Best regards, Terry

Hi all,

Ramsay (10th edition) mentions a base plate with large script for the late issues of this model. I can not find a picture of such a baseplate. Has one of the gentlemen on this forum ever seen such a base plate and can he provide a large picture of it ?

Thanks and regards.

Jacques

The first yellow box for the Triumph is this one with double numbering.

There is no reference number on the pictorial side.

This box has the reference number on a RED oval.

This other box is rare, the reference number is on a small BLACK oval.

The question is : which of the second and third box above is the earliest of the two ?

As often the photos are by courtesy of Vectis Auctions.
