Bring out the kid in you with this Vintage Red 1968 SPC Red Patrol Car by Dinky Toys -The most popular diecast makers in history. The Dinky model is an accurate representation of the prop used in the TV series.

The Spectrum Patrol Car (SPC) was first produced in 1968 and was available until 1975. It was part of a range of three vehicles from the TV series ‘Captain Scarlet’ produced by Gerry Anderson. This is the first version of the SPC which is true to the colour of the TV model although a later bronze version was produced.

The car was fitted with a ‘Jet Engine Sound’ which was produced by pushing the rear of the car down while pushing. The sound was generated by a large gear attached to a pinion, which turned the shaft on which was mounted a pressed steel flywheel . After it spun up to speed and the pressure on the back axle was released the flywheel spun freely and a spring steel “clicker”, which rested against the pinion on the flywheel shaft, made a whining noise.

Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was a 1960s British science-fiction television series produced by the Century 21 Productions company of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, John Read and Reg Hill. It was first broadcast on ATV Midlands (now run by the ITV network) from September 1967 to May 1968.

Accessible only to Spectrum personnel, the Spectrum Patrol Car SPC was 18 ft (5.4 m) long and equipped with a four-wheel drive. It could seat up to four people, reach speeds of up to 195 mph (312 kph), and was powered by a gas turbine located under the rear roof. The road-tire friction heat at high speeds is countered by wing intakes, while a central housing and rear-mounted fin maintain the vehicle’s stability at speed.

It's protected under plexiglass to keep it looking pristine, ensure protection while still allowing you to fully appreciate this piece of collectible history. It offers detailed finishings and a descriptive metal plaque for an elegant, gallery-quality aesthetic.

A must have for any prestigious car collection!
