Dinky Toys 943 ESSO Tanker
Leyland Octopus Tanker ESSO by Dinky Toys, No. 943. With red metal Supertoy wheels. Very near mint/boxed, with card packing piece. From The Heart of England Collection.
This model makes a pleasing display piece with a vivid red original paint finish throughout. Tinplate tank has transfers on both sides and at rear. No dents in the tanker. The lettering at the sides is virtually complete – complete. The rear transfer is complete, although there are a couple of small light scratches no doubt due to contact with a box staple.
Bright baseplate and well-shaped original tyres. Spare included. Rivet fixing.
Attractive original glossy finish.
Couple of very small marks to the front bumper and the occasional tiny mark at a wheel arch or two.
The striped pictorial box with italicised print impresses with strong colours on fresh, clean card. Shiny staples. Barely any wear. Small packing piece is still present too.
