This Leyland Comet casting did good work for Dinky being in production from 1949 right up to the end of the 50s. It carried three back bodies; this stake truck, the cement lorry and a drop-down tailgate truck. There are dozens of permutations of model number and colour as all three were each available under three different model numbers at various times.
The Stake Truck was first Model No.531 in 1949, in 1954 it changed to 931 and in 1956 it changed again to 417. It is seen in a range of jolly colour combinations with cabs in shades of blue, red, yellow & violet and back bodies in yellow, blue, green and brown. All of them are valued well and sought after, there's not a lot to choose between them
