SPECTRUM PURSUIT VEHICLE
This Website is dedicated to the SPV (Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle), from the TVshow Captain Scarlet, built by Dinky Toys of 1968 to 1976.
SPV with black bumper is the ultimate version. They are six differents version, with two different boxes.
First SPV have white bumper, decalcs and blue bottom. Last have black bumper, stickers not decals and blue or gloss black bottom.
All factory-built versions are describe on this website.
A particularly irritating thing about Dinky was that they'd often use incorrect, and often horrible, paint schemes on t.v. toys.
Fortunately, the Captain Scarlet Dinkies were painted in appropriate colour schemes. The guy that did the peculiar paint jobs must have had the week off when they put the model into production.
MSV is white for Dinky and silver grey from original TV show. SPC is red metalic or orange metalic and red from original TV shov !!!!! The SPV is correct....
= Mint In Box..... ie: Toy is in Perfect Condition, and is in it's
Original Box (not reproduction box), though box has some damage to it.
= Mint In Near Mint Box..... ie: Toy is in perfect condition, and is
in it's Original Box (not reproduction box), and the box only has
superficial (very Minor), damage to it.
= Mint In Mint Box..... ie: Both the Toy & Box are Original and
are in Perfect Condition, just like new.
you may see but not for SPV: MOC (Mint On Card), MONMC (Mint On Near
Mint Card), & MOMC (Mint On Mint Card), these are the same as above,
but mean "On Card",
instead of "In Box" (ie: Corgi Junior).
