After reading Randy's recent post,  https://diecast.org/community/1_43/more-new-matrix-2/#post-74805 , I thought I had a 1/43 Scarabeo but blanked out on it!

Then I remembered and dug it out - the Dinky Toys #217 Alfa Romeo O.S.I. Scarabeo.   It debuted at the Paris Motor Show in 1966, but Dinky Toys made their version from 1968 to 1970.  Fluorescent red was an interesting choice for Dinky at the time!

Yes! Still have a Mint boxed one of these somewhere. Time to check storage boxes again. Thanks for the reminder Karl. That blue Corgi Toronado from yesterday is likely in the same box.
