Dinky Toys 944 Leyland Octopus Tanker
Leyland Octopus Tanker by Dinky Toys, No. 944. Scarce issue with black plastic wheels. Near mint/boxed. From A Phenomenal Collection.
This fine Dinky Supertoys model is in original condition – this is the rare issue with black plastic wheels. Bright white and orange-yellow cab and body, grey chassis with fresh and bright SHELL BP labels on both sides (tiny crease to one), and at the rear of the tanker.
So often, the white plastic tank becomes discoloured and yellowed over time. Happy to say that this example is a very bright and fresh white colour.
Complete with tow hook and spare wheel still affixed to the bright baseplate.
A few little chips i.e. at a couple of wheel arches, and a few little dots to the cab. Tiny corner crease to one label.
The late issue end flap box is complete and bright. A little age/handling wear includes a small scuff.
Unusual issue to fill that gap!
