French Dinky 808
French Dinky 808 Military Recovery Lorry. Sand finish. Very near mint/boxed. With packing. Scarce. From The Cumbrian Collection.
What a fine Dinky military breakdown truck! This desert sand issue is in close to pristine condition, with all delicate parts complete, hole for driver ( but this version was never issued with a driver).
Just one little mark at a wheel arch and a couple of (probably factory assembly) marks on the underside.
So often damaged due to the weight of the truck, this box is notably bright, fresh and complete with all end flaps. Tear to the tuck-in part at an end flap has been re-enforced and the other has been re-attached. Minor grubbiness. Complete with card packing piece.
Made between 1972-74.
