This model is the Dinky 108-H-6 Sam's Car in Pale Blue. It is a futuristic 2 door saloon car.

There are no opening parts on this model. The model comes with a pull back friction drive mechanism at the rear (hidden under the yellow plastic interior). This version has red grille and rear louvres.

The interior is a yellow plastic vacform representing the two seats, dashboard but no steering wheel. The seating is out of proportion with the side doors that are three times as long as the seats they supposedly give access to. The glazing is clear all round.

All wheels are of the shaped type - solid, one piece, five spoke metal hubs with a black rubber tyre.

The base plate is black painted metal and is marked with DINKY TOYS "MECCANO LTD MADE IN ENGLAND" on three lines at the centre top, SAM'S CAR on a raised block (part of the exhaust?) in the centre middle, "108" on another raised block just below the centre middle, and "MADE UNDER LICENCE FROM © ATV (OVERSEAS) 1967" at the centre bottom. The base plate carries a rudimentary representation of the exhaust system and is held in place with two self tapping screws at the front and rear.

This model was issued between 1969 and the end of 1975.
