This is a diecast Dinky 1/43 Chrysler, I believe 1939. It's in pretty good condition for it's age, a keeper for sure.

    Nice. Looks like in excellent shape!
    This is a postwar issue of the original 1939 British Dinky model. The prewar had thinner axles and "smooth" wheels, white tires. British postwar issues had black wheels with a ridge.
    Rarer American-market versions issued in 1950 have lighter blue, cream or light green body colors with matching wheels, and there were some (very few and rare today) with the fenders painted in a contrasting color, the Chrysler being light green with dark green fenders, or yellow with red fenders like a taxicab.
    Others in the series of 1939 American cars were a Studebaker and a Lincoln Zephyr coupes, and Buick and Packard limousines (meaning "3-window sedan").
    Your Chrysler is far from being rare as Meccano sold a zillion of these, but it is beautiful and indeed should be a keeper.
