Restored Dinky and Corgi Toys

Recommended Posts

If you can't afford mint Dinkys and Corgis and the ones you can afford are too beat up, look at restorations. These were all bought for between $7 and $20, only the Cadillac cost more.

It's a German NSU Sport Prinz, introduced in 1958 and made till I think 1967. I don't know much about them either except that they're pretty cute.
