Colour variations

This is one of the two early two-tone versions based on actual Hudson Commodore colour schemes. Later in the 1950s, when Dinky started putting two-tone paintwork on a lot of other model cars in an attempt to compete with Corgi, the model gained different and less authentic paintwork variations, with different colours and stylings.
