French Dinky 36A
French Dinky 36A Willeme Log Carrier Truck. Near mint plus/boxed. Early issue. From The Cumbrian Collection.
A pleasing first issue example of this early French Dinky truck made between 1956-59.
It has a lustrous paint finish, complete with six logs.
This version has the pierced detailing at the beam beneath the logs, and of course, it was later renumbered 897. Correct painted ridged hubs to the front cab wheels, rear four wheels are concave. A few small marks and a flake of paint on the yellow section (quite easy to overlook).
The correct early box is complete and brightly-coloured. Light wear includes a little edge scuffing to the box base underside.
