Sought after models that are so difficult to find in good condition! Dinky dies were sold to the Indian Firm S. Kumar & Co. trading as Atamco. (1968-70). Often known as Indian-Dinky toys, the finish was poor in comparison.
A close to mint example Mini Bus model in a distinctive shade of bright mid green and one-piece wheels and tyres. Original silver details, off-white interior, black steering wheel, and intact glazing.
Few marks at the rear.
Complete and bright pictorial card box with the correct ‘ATAMCO PRIVATE LTD. CALCUTTA’ print. Small area of surface loss due to a price label removal (we expect). Light wear includes a tiny tear.
