This is an Oxford Diecast set in mint condition , the box is mint .
Three completely different takes on the Mercury make up this 1:87 scale set from Oxford's US Classic cars series in celebration of the launch of the marque in 1949. The first model in Lima Tan and Haiti Beige is a two-door coupé registered in Kansas 'The Wheat State' 11-3987 in 1949.
The second model in the set is decorated in a muted monochrome green with lots of contrasting chrome. The interior is also a soft green with a pale grey steering wheel. Once again it features whitewall tyres and carries a registration plate FA 9110 Texas 49.
Last but not least is a Hot Rod version of the Mercury in black with blazing yellow and red masking working from the bonnet halfway along the length of the car. Registered 800 581 from Indiana, the car features silver wheels with red rims and brown interior seating. The Mercury badge sits prominently along the front edge of the bonnet and above the rear number plate.
The varied and colourful versions of the 1949 Mercury in this celebratory set make it a worthy gift for any collector of American Classic cars of the post-war period, not forgetting yourself, of course.
