--32d and 899 Delahaye auto échelle de pompiers (1955-1970)

Hi everybody.
I like very, very much this model and I can't resist to make a new thread with my three different Delahaye.

Behind, in the middle of the photo, is the second type.

The one on the right, is the fourth type, with concav hubs, big smooth tyres and black steering wheel.
On the left is the sixth type, with concav hubs, grooved tyres and white/cream steering wheel.

The two different racks :

The three Delahaye with the small bag for 10 replacement elastic strings.

Cheers

Richard

Yes Jan. The elastiques are only made for this model and the small bag was available separately.

I remember very well that in the 60's, in Paris when you asked the firemen station for help, they always came with three vehicules : the Citro

The Delahaye was the first Supertoys made in France and this label was attached to the early issues to celebrate this new range.

Note that the Delahaye has right hand drive which is unusual in France but except for their jeep, all Delahayes were right hand drive.

Hi Jan.
If I am right, the Delahaye 32D was produced in 1955 and the Will

Hi Richard, yes the Delahaye was the first to be issued, but I just meant to say that the Delahaye was 'born' as a Dinky Toy and the Willeme was directly introduced as a true Dinky Supertoy (in July 1956, if I'm not mistaken).
Just a little odd 'splitting hairs' from me, I know.

Kindest regards, Jan

Jan,
I have just found an interesting page in a catalogue of 1956.

It shows that the Delahaye was already a "Dinky Supertoys" and that the Will

I suppose that as this model was the first DINKY SUPERTOYS, it may have been issued as a DINKY TOYS because the marque SUPERTOYS had not been issued yet. This is why the marque DINKY TOYS has been used for the first year. Note that although the boxes used both marques, the base plates have always been stamped DINKY TOYS.

Richard,

Could you please post the list of the six variations for this model.

There were four different boxes all of them white with blue stripes :
