Dinky 440 Tanker 'Mobilgas'. Very near mint/boxed. Early issue in scarlet with blue edged white lettering & smooth tyres. From The Cumbrian Collection.
A classic sought-after Dinky Studebaker Tanker (early issue 1954-58) in all original condition with a lustrous and unfaded paint finish and intact transfers throughout.
Bright base and well-formed original smooth black tyres.
A few tiny marks to the paint finish. The delicate detailed transfer at the rear has slightly yellowed as is nearly always the case, except for one small section in the centre.
Silver domes on the roof are unrubbed.
The pictorial card box is complete and strongly-coloured. Note the inky residue from a price label and residue from a label on another side. Small end flap tear.
