Dinky Supertoys 966 Marrel Multi-Bucket Unit
Marrel Multi-Bucket Unit by Dinky Supertoys, No. 966. Near mint plus/boxed. Harder to find with LEMON-COLOURED box base. From The Kennedy-Wilson Collection.
Issued between 1960-64, this Albion model has a pale yellow finish with a detachable grey skip. A difficult to find in perfect condition, largely due to the design of the model with moving metal parts. This example is in close to mint condition:
Bright base and well-shaped original grey treaded tyres.
Closest inspection finds a couple of touch-ins and there is a small flake of paint on one top edge of the skip.
Bright baseplate and metal parts and that notably the metal bar.
The striped Supertoys box is complete, clean and bright, showing minimal wear. Shiny staples. Harder to find with this lemon box base (nearly always found with the usual deep blue base).
