The Standard Vanguard Dinky Toy was produced by Meccano Ltd. (Liverpool, UK) between 1948 and 1960. For the first two years of this production run (1948-50), this diecast car was cast with the open rear wheel arches (fender wells) seen in the model here, exposing all of the rear tire. Over the subsequent 10 years (1950-60), the rear fender wells were enclosed (so that only the bottoms of the rear tires were visible). Since the toy pictured here has the open rear wheel arches, it was clearly produced between 1948 and 1950.

The "40" series of Dinkys — ultimately consisting of eight British saloon (sedan) cars — was the first completely new series introduced by Meccano after production resumed following the end of WWII. The Standard Vanguard toy (originally numbered #40E) was the third to be released in this series, and was re-numbered as #153 in 1954. Since the model pictured here was produced in 1950 or earlier, it predates the number change and is technically #40E.

The Vanguard was a line of cars produced by the Standard Motor Company of the UK. It was the first new car line introduced by Standard following the end of WWII. The Vanguard line was manufactured between 1947 and 1963, going through five generations during this 16-year production run. The diecast model shown in this photo represents the first generation of the Vanguard, referred to as the "Phase I", produced between 1947 and 1953.

During the last two years of Phase I production (1952-53), some modest modifications were made to the body design, including revisions to the appearance of the front grille. (Vanguards produced during 1952-53 are referred to as "Phase IA".) The toy shown here has the earlier (pre-1952) grille, and thus represents Vanguards manufactured between 1947 and 1951.

Phase I Vanguards had a 2.1L 4-cylinder inline engine capable of accelerating the car to a top speed of almost 80 mph. In addition to this saloon (sedan) body style, the Phase I was also produced as an estate wagon (station wagon) and, in Australia, as a utility vehicle.

Visual Standard Assist?

Question by MZ: Visual Simple Help?
Im making an “etch a sketch” program in visual simple. Im trying to input a “shake” command button, that makes the window shake, and erase the picoutput box contents when pushed. how can i make the window shake via command button?

Very best answer:

Answer by SquirrelNutz
Here’s a code example (written in VB6) that will “shake” the window from left to right. You can easily adjust to whatever you’d like.

Dim intCount As Integer

Private Sub cmdShake_Click()
intCount = 1
Timer1.Interval = 300
Timer1.Enabled = Accurate
Finish Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
If intCount = 1 Or intCount = three Then
Me.Left = Me.Left + 500
ElseIf intCount = two Then
Me.Left = Me.Left – 500
Else
Me.Left = Me.Left – 500
Timer1.Enabled = False
Finish If
intCount = intCount + 1
Finish Sub

Good luck!
