Cam­bridge pleases at bury St Ed­munds

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Pre­view: toys & Mod­els col­lec­tors’ sale, lacy scott & knight, Bury st ed­munds, suf­folk, 18 Fe­bru­ary

While it is usu­ally rare diecast mod­els that make the head­lines at toy sales, there are some pleas­ing al­ter­na­tives to the prod­ucts of the bet­ter known man­u­fac­tur­ers. One such ex­am­ple is the at­trac­tive Vic­tory Mod­els Austin Cam­bridge A40/50 saloon. In chunky 1:18th scale, the Vic­tory Cam­bridge has a plas­tic body, tin­plate in­te­rior, and is bat­tery pow­ered. LSK has a pleas­ing pale blue with cream in­te­rior ver­sion in its first Toys & Mod­els Col­lec­tors’ Sale of the year at Bury on Satur­day 18 Fe­bru­ary. The orig­i­nal pe­riod box is a bit bat­tered but adds nos­tal­gic charm, while the model is miss­ing a few bits and pieces such as the front num­ber­plate and fly­ing A bon­net badge, but none­the­less it is wor­thy of its £60-90 es­ti­mate. www. lskauc­tion­cen­tre.co.uk
