French Dinky Toys 569 Berliet Stradair Tipper
Berliet Stradair Side Tipper by French Dinky Toys, No. 569. Very near mint/boxed, with card packing & leaflet. Scarce commercial truck from The Berlin Collection.
Issued between 1967-71, this fine and scarce commercial truck has a distinctive two-tone green finish with a fully functioning side tipping motion.
Complete number plates front and rear and only the occasional mark to the paint finish.
Nice to see that all the delicate plastic parts on the chassis are intact.
Close inspection finds a little tarnishing to the metal parts.
The colourfully illustrated card box is difficult to find in good condition due to the comparative weight of the model and the flimsy nature of the end flap box. This example has fared better than most! Lovely colourfully illustrated scene is fresh and vibrant and the colours are strong. No repairs and even the little serrated strip is present. Still feels very crisp and sound – and not a bit weary. Minor wear/creasing.
Leaflet & card packing tray is included:
