Notes

Such a fine and gleaming early example of this nicely finished Citroen Breakdown vehicle, later re-numbered to 582. A lustrous finish throughout, with complete ‘DINKY SERVICE’ lettering on both sides. Bright winding handle (including the cuff), axle ends and baseplate. Spare wheel stowed behind the cab. Looks like old shop stock with a beautiful and vibrant lustre:

Very close to mint condition.
The pictorial box is bright and compete. Quite a crisp feel. Little box wear including grubbiness and a small crease. Period price label.
