Dinky Toys 408 Big Bedford Lorry
Big Bedford Lorry by Dinky Toys, No.408. Harder to find mid-blue and orange-yellow version. Very near mint/boxed. From The Berlin Collection.
This classic Dinky commercial has a mid-blue cab and chassis, with deep orange-yellow back and yellow wheels. More unusual colour finish.
A striking example in all original condition that looks very close to mint. None of the usual marks on the cab roof and only the occasional little mark/rub besides. Original grey tyres are a pleasing true grey colour (have not yellowed with age) although two have a very light flat spot.
The fresh and bright yellow picture box is a very attractive example with the ‘LF’ label in place at a short lid end. Vibrant strong colours and no splits or graffiti. Staples are tarnished now and note there is a small fleck of surface loss at a short lid end (faint writing at this site).
