Crescent #800 Jaguar Saloon Car

This model is the Crescent #800 Jaguar Saloon Car in green. The model appears to be identical to the Police Car casting except there is no provision for a hole in the roof (to accommodate the roof horn on the Police Car) and I doubt Crescent would have drilled the roof holes so there must be at least two identical molds, one with provision for the hole and one without.

The model is a one-piece cast metal body with molded headlights, grille, front and rear bumpers, engine louvres, doors, and wheel arches. The front lights, grille, and front and rear bumpers have been picked out in silver. There is no glazing.

This model has no base plate but the body is marked with "Crescent, Made, in, England" on four lines" on the underside of the bonnet.

All wheels are one-piece metal on crimped axles.

This model was issued between 1948 and 1954.
