Dinky Toys 14C Coventry Climax Fork Lift Truck
Coventry Climax Fork Lift Truck by Dinky Toys, No. 14C. Near mint plus/boxed. Scarce box version with packing piece. From The Reference Collection.
A rare find in this box presentation – with a green paper label. Made between 1949-54.
This model has a vivid orange finish, green forks, familiar fawn driver and black steering wheel.
Shiny baseplate and bright winding handle which raises and lowers the forks well. Hard to find a mark to the rich glossy orange and green finish but close inspection find a couple of touch-ins (possibly factory).
Bright orange lift-off lid card box has a complete and bright green and white paper label.
A little storage crumple to the orange card of the box lower and a small edge tear. Card packing insert (small tear) is included.
Shopkeeper’s price on the lid side.
An endearing classic early Dinky toy.
