Hi all,
I've just become a member and owner of a dandy... I can't tell you what one I have as I've not got a clue?
I got her off ebay, I can tell you its orange and has internal wheels and that's it...she's in a bit off a state ,it took ages to get the wheels off as they wouldn't come out between the drum and bodywork. ..had to let tyre's down in the end.
Many thanks for letting me join and any help on model and why wheels wouldn't come out, been looking at putting spacers between beam axle and body to get the space
Cheers Shane

Sounds like a 1970's Dandy 4.
Pat (A member here) did a complete renovation on one a few years back.

On the wheels issue. wheels have a thing called offset. That does the same as spacers. Original mini wheels had a 23mm offset or about an inch.

They should also be 10 inch tyres

I wonder if yours has the wrong wheels.

Alternatively, is the suspension sagging. Is there space between the top of the wheel and the wheel arch.

Hi many thanks, think your right about the suspension it's sits very low so will have to raise it up
