Either the 194 Bentley S2 or the 198 Rolls-Royce Phantom V?

Bentley.

looks Bentley to me too

Re:I\'m a Dinky Toy. But who am I ? 10 years, 9 months ago #5

Platinum Boarder
Yes 194 Bentley.

But this is a scarce one.

Look at the rivets... 

I will show you entire car.

Yes, now that you mention it, the rivets do not look right. I, for one, would like to see a better shot of the base to see all three rivets. Is it just the rear that are pulled like that or is the front rivet like that too?

Re:I\'m a Dinky Toy. But who am I ? 10 years, 9 months ago #7

Platinum Boarder
Front rivet is exactly the same.

I think I could make some new pictures tomorrow.

So looks like the question has been resolved being a Bentley 194. Still post the pictures of the full base plate.

Re:I\'m a Dinky Toy. But who am I ? 10 years, 9 months ago #9

Platinum Boarder
I will post pictures soon.

But It\'s not only a 194 but a unusual one.

Well Corky was it assembled in South Africa?

Cheers Chris

let me guess... the body is a Rolls-Royce. However, the grille and chassis are from the 194 Bentley?

Re:I\'m a Dinky Toy. But who am I ? 10 years, 9 months ago #12

Richard, I think Chris is right, assembled in South Africa. Their equipment was different than Dinky  of England of France. There was a Bentley in two tone green I think, painted and assembled in South Africa.

interesting to collect. would like to see a proper deserving photo soon.

Re:I\'m a Dinky Toy. But who am I ? 10 years, 9 months ago #14

Platinum Boarder
Yes you\'re right ! It\'s a SAF one.

Rivets were special ones.

I\'ll make pictures this evening, with a thunderbird from Africa too. And a english 194.

Re:I\'m a Dinky Toy. But who am I ? 10 years, 9 months ago #15

Here is the obvious difference between SAF and GB rivets (in fact not rivets as you know but snapping (I\'m not sure for this french translation...)).



And now this one besides two GB ones. It has small paint touchups, cracked windshield, poor chromes, and slight rust on chassis...
