My price includes postage and packing within the UK, items usually being despatched within 48 hours of receipt of funds. I am happy to send items abroad but buyers from overseas should contact me for shipping costs and make an additional payment. Buyers are liable for import taxes in their own country where appropriate.
These are photos of the actual model you are buying. Remember that these toys are around 50 years old! All models advertised are original, not restored or repainted unless I have stated otherwise.
Every Christmas and Birthday List I wrote from 1961 to 1967 would have had one of these on it. I never did get one. I wasn’t a particular fan of the truck - it was the steering I loved and this is the only truck that had that marvellous system that simply left Dinky Toys looking sad in comparison.
This is the later version in dark blue with light blue lettering. Earlier models will have been pale blue with red writing then dark blue with yellow writing. They all had an opening door and a workshop with a super little vice inside. The operation of the lowering ramps is excellent and works just fine, with the rear tail-ramp in place and locking in place as it should too. Many models now fail in this respect.
It has signs of wear with paint loss here and there but overall it displays very nicely. The windows are brilliantly clear and the interior clean. The suspension is also excellent, with good, original-looking tyres.
This model is also the one I am selling as Gift set 16 with the three old-style racing cars.
