-250 Police Mini Cooper 'S' (1967-76)

There is something interesting in each issue of the Journal. In the last issue (January 2021) is this photo of a chrome plated Mini Cooper S in gold colour (chrome plating can be done in a varity of colours, not only in white) which is not gold plated.

Very little is known about the chrome plated Dinky Toys. Some were production models like the # 352 ed Staker's car and the # 700 Spitfire, some were promotionnal models : the # 149 Dyane, some were code 3, some were fitted on plinths for special occasions : # 112 Austin Sprite, # 674 Austin Champ, # 698 Tank transporter and Centurion, some were only partly plated like the # 266 ERF fire tender and some still remain to be discovered.

So far, I have listed 24 chrome plated models but there must be others :

23 e   Speed of the Wind
39 e   Chrysler Royal
24 r   Peugeot 203
24 s  Simca 8 sport
105   Maximum Security Vehicle
108   Sam's car
112   Austin Sprite
113   MG B
135   Triumph 2000
138   Hillman Imp
149   Citroën Dyane
250   Mini Cooper S
266   E.R.F. fire tender
269   Type 4 Ford Transit
296   Duple Viceroy luxury coach
352   Ed Staker's car
353   Shade II mobile
476   Morris Bullnose
674   Austin Champ
698   Antar tank transporter and Centurion
700   Spitfire Mk II
925   Leyland Dump truck with tilt cab
965   Euclid rear dump truck
1419 Citroën Dyane

Do you know any others

Perhaps Vic Mumby can tell us more about these mysterious models.
