Notes

A desirable item from the French Dinky factory, this Breakdown Truck ‘AUTOROUTES’ has a vivid, unfaded orange finish and complete ‘DEPANNAGE AUTOROUTES’ on both sides. Second issue (1970-71). Complete with all delicate parts (including the little red roof light) intact. Functioning winch mechanism.

Nice silver ‘Berliet’ detail head-on as well as headlights (all original).
A few minor marks.
With still-sealed clear packet which contains number plates and correct Road Sign. Also included is the little promotional leaflet & original card packing ring.

undefined

The illustrated card box is bright and complete. Crisp feel. So often found in very poor condition due to the flimsy nature of the card in comparison to the weight of the truck. This example is surely one of the best we have seen. Crisp and intact showing tiny wear only.
