Dinky 978 Bedford Refuse Wagon. Metallic green cab issue, very pale grey back & roof box, mid-grey chassis, red plastic wheels. Very near mint/boxed, with both original bins, including the lids. Very scarce find in the Export Box. From The Reference Collection.
This classic Dinky truck was issued for some sixteen years in total (1964-72), this version has a metallic green cab, very pale grey back and roof box. Red plastic hubs. Red interior. Mid-grey chassis. Quite a difficult combination to find. Model is in unused condition with both REFUSE WAGON labels at the sides, as well as the complete chevron label at the rear. Perfect crest transfers on both sides of the vivid green cab. All delicate rear opening shutters are intact.
In very close to mint condition with just the occasional negligible mark.
Both plastic bins are present, complete with removable lids.
The first example we have ever offered for sale in this Export Box. Carefully fitted with replacement cellophane at some time. Light wear to the card and a thin strip of surface loss on one side.
Few were made in this fragile style of box – and even fewer have survived!
