Dinky Toys 521 Bedford Articulated Truck
Bedford Articulated Lorry by Dinky Toys, No.521. Very scarce issue in red and black. Near mint plus/boxed. From The Reference Collection.
An early example – made during one year only – 1948! A scarce Bedford truck with a bright paint finish in the early correct buff box.
This Bedford Articulated Lorry presents very well indeed. Red with black wings and wheels arches, red platform and coupling for the spare wheel. Earliest style fuel tank with no ‘over hang’ from the platform above. Black wheels and smooth black well-shaped tyres, with the exception of the trailer wheels which are radial. No window glazing on these early issues. 20mph sign is in place at the rear. Original tyres run well.
A beauty, in all original and authentic condition.
Minor marking to the paint finish.
The buff card box has a complete paper label. Staining to staples and some age grubbiness.
