Dinky 440 Tanker 'Mobilgas'. Near mint plus/boxed. Scarce issue with blue MOBILGAS lettering, treaded tyres in picture box. From The Cumbrian Collection.
A classic sought-after Dinky Studebaker Tanker in gleaming condition with a shining deep red original paint finish.
Note the later style transfers and MOBIL lettering at the rear.
Occasional little mark to the paint finish and a very small corner scratch to the rear transfer.
Notably, the silver domes are unrubbed! Bright baseplate. Fine original treaded tyres.
Just one little chip to the paint finish low down on one side (probably factory assembly).
The box is brightly-coloured and complete. Hand-written ‘ESSO’ on both sides. Light wear.
Not an easy variation to find.
