Now you will be needing the Bristol-Cooper, it is green with light green hubs not that it matters to you. Also there are few more early record cars too.

23aH MG Matnette-Style 1938-1940, 1946-1953 later numbered #220
23b Hotchkiss GB 1935-1940, 1946-1948

23c Mercedes-Benz France 1949-1951
23c Mercedes-Benz GB 1936-1940, 1947-1950
23d Auto-Union France 1950-1952
23d Auto-Union GB 1936-1940, 1948-1950
23e Speed of the Wind you already have 1936-1940
23m Thunderbolt 1936-1940
23p Garners's MG 1939-1940, 1946-1947

Your F1 racers started out with these cars in about 1952 and about 1954 their numbers were updated along with the rest of the Dinky line. That eliminated the 2 number with letter designation and produced the 3 and 4 number system that would carry on until the end of Dinky Toys about 1979
