The Dinky Austin Atlantic Convertible. Released in May 1951 at 3/4 as 140A then renumbered 106 in March 1954 priced 2/11. Last appeared in the 1958 catalogue and was deleted in 1959. Of the six colour schemes shown, the mid-blue version is very uncommon to rare. Shown in the Jan 1954 Meccano magazine for 2/8.

There is a rare dark blue/red interior and hubs vaiant and a very light sky blue version.

Early models, had no individual boxes and were sold in plain cardboard boxes of six(140a). They had an extension of the casting support of the front axles and no number on the base. The number 106 had an individual yellow box and no number on the base plate; plus a shortened support for the front axles. This is the way to differentiate them.

A rare colour scheme that has the extended support, it is definitely 140a and issued before 1954. Generally these are early models with no box. The late 106 models are typically the light blue/red interior and wheels; the pink/cream interior and wheels; and the black/red interior and wheels, which came in individual boxes. The original price was 3/- . It was available in black blue or pink (>12 colourways) finish at 1:44 scale. Released as Dinky 106 in 1951 withdrawn as Dinky 106 in 1959.
