This original Dinky Shopkeeper’s Trade Box contains 3 x Dinky 31D Trojan Vans ‘OXO’. Each is finished in original deep lustrous blue with lighter blue cast wheels and virtually complete – complete ‘Beefy OXO’ lettering at the sides. These classic Dinky van with trademark ‘Beefy Oxo’ transfers on both sides make a great display piece – especially sitting atop the Dinky Trade Box which comes complete (notably) with all original card dividers.
Occasional little mark to the paint finish.
Bright baseplates and well-shaped smooth original tyres.
Of course, these early versions (later re-numbered 453) would never have been boxed individually, but given out from the shopkeeper’s trade box of six, supplied by Dinky.
This Trade Box is complete and has no repairs. Light age wear/grubbiness and some period penned writing on the lid.
