Notes

This classic military item was made from 1957-65 and it is only at the end of the production run in 1965 that it was made with plastic wheels, and a plastic driver. Barely handled, this truck has a silky paint finish, perfect squadron marking and removable tinplate canopy. Lift off the canopy and the two spare tyres are revealed!

Undented tinplate canopy. Tow hook.

Just a couple of small marks away from mint visible under the closest scrutiny.
The correct late issue picture Supertoys box is very bright, clean and complete, with no splits.Light wear. Nice to see the original card packing piece still present (this example has one side in pale yellow, the other buff).
Not an easy find.
