Six from only 1176 promotional models made during 1960. Beautiful cream paint finish and notably complete ’Job’s Dairy’ transfers front and back. A few factory assembly marks to the paint finish (one model has a flake of paint at the rear) and a tiny factory retouch to the roof of another. It must be stressed that this is not a later ‘made-up’ set of vans – these are the originals and are each contained in vibrant crisp unfaded boxes (correct plain N.C.B. boxes). Each box has the correct colour spot at one end. Note that a couple of these super-crisp and extremely fresh, vibrant boxes have a couple of seam tears.
Still an exceptional item!

The outer carton is complete, clean, fresh and bright. Traces of the original sellotape used to close the carton, and very light storage wear.
A very scarce find and a shrewd investment piece. A sensational Dinky display item – old shop stock Dinky models in their original packing are especially prized.
