This model is the Dinky 139am-G-1 Ford Fordor Sedan in Olive US Staff Car livery. It is missing all the decals.

All detail is cast into the body. Detail cast includes the front bumper, grille and lights, the doors and door handles, the rear side "flashes", and the rear lights, boot lid and hinges, and bumper. The entire car is painted Olive and nothing appears to have been highlighted in any other colour.

There is no interior as this model was issued before Dinky started including interiors. There is also no glazing.

The base plate is lacquered tin plate (now rusty), in the centre of which is "Dinky Toys", followed by "Ford Sedan", then "Made in England", and "Meccano Ltd" over 4 lines. It is held in place by three machined rivets, one at the front and two to the rear.

All wheels are of the cast metal type - solid one piece metal hubs, painted in the body colour of olive, each with a separate black "rubber" tyre and fitted to steel domed axles.

This model was issued between 1952 and 1953.
