Dinky Supertoys 978 Refuse Wagon
Bedford Refuse Wagon by Dinky Toys, No. 978. With BLUE INTERIOR. Very near mint/boxed, with both original bins, including the lids. Wear to box base. From The Berlin Collection.
This classic Dinky truck was issued for some sixteen years in total (1964-72), this being an early issue with a bright non-metallic green cab,pale grey back and red plastic hubs. More often found with the metallic green cab. Blue interior – a scarce variation.
Model is in very close to mint condition with both REFUSE WAGON labels at the sides, as well as the complete chevron label at the rear. Perfect crest transfers on both sides of the vivid green cab. All delicate rear opening shutters are intact and function well, too.
Both plastic bins are present, with lids.
The pictorial lift-off lid box has vibrant colours. Attractive backdrop for the truck when on display. Light wear. Version with lemon box base (some storage staining).
