Dinky Toys 972; 20-ton Lorry Mounted Coles Crane; Orange / Yellow

Dinky Commercials
 

This truck was made in very large numbers from 1955 to 1969. From 1955-62 the truck is orange, the crane yellow and there is no 'Long Vehicle' decal, each cab has a driver. From 1962 to 1969 the spec was the same except for the addition of 'Long Vehicle' decals. From 1967 to 1969 a new version was available in yellow & black with either yellow or black plastic hubs and a blue driver in the lorry cab only.

There is a rare special version produced for the 16th International Commercial Motor Show which is the basic orange/yellow model in a special commemorative box. These are rare and valuable. Of the other issues look for plastic hubs.

This car sourced from a private collection in June 2017
