Dinky Toys 431 Guy Warrior 4-Ton Lorry
Guy Warrior 4 Ton Lorry by Dinky Toys, No. 431. Very, very near mint/boxed. Early issue without window glazing. Scarce model from The Berlin Collection.
This Guy 4-Ton Lorry has a light tan cab and chassis, deep green back, paler green hubs. No window glazing on this early issue (1958-59). A very attractive example with day-one original colours throughout. Virtually mint.
Tyres are well-shaped. Baseplate is shiny (small mark probably as-made).
Light wear on the colourful card box. You can see why Dinky preferred to house their comparatively heavy commercials in the sturdier card boxes. However, this box has survived well with light handling wear/grubbiness. Crisp feel. No tears. Resistant end flaps.
