Dinky Toys 432 Guy Flat Truck
Guy Flat Truck by Dinky Toys, No. 432. Very near mint/boxed. Dated 1956. Rare red cab/blue back combination. With card packing piece. From The Off-shore Collection. Starting bid £350. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
This is a scarce and original version with a vivid red cab and chassis, mid blue back, mid-blue ridged hubs. Large painted hook. Second type cab so this model has triangular lugs at either side of the front number plate. Obviously unused, with a vibrant lustre. Barely a mark to the all-original finish. Bright metal parts.
So rare to find in any condition! Smooth original tyres (faint flat spot to one). Complete with spare wheel.
Marked Dinky Toys on the base.
The yellow and blue lift-off lid box is strongly-coloured and the deep blue base has only minor shelf rubbing to the underside. Bright staples too (tiny tarnishing). Lid has vivid colours. Few minor scuffs. Dinky stamp inside the box lid dates this particular example from June 1956.
Nice to see the original card packing piece included.
