Dinky Toys 434 Bedford T.K. Crash Truck 'Auto Services'
Bedford T.K. Crash Truck 'Auto Services' by Dinky Toys, No. 434. Metallic red (including roof) and pale grey issue. Very scarce with WHITE PLASTIC wheels & WHITE interior. Very near mint/boxed (late issue picture box). From The Coastline Collection.
Issued between 1966-70, this Bedford TK Truck has an all original metallic red cab (including the ribbed roof), and a pale grey back, white interior, red operating wheel, white plastic wheels. ‘Auto Services’ labels are complete on both sides.
With none of the usual roof rubs, this Bedford Truck is in fine condition. Couple f mere front bumper rubs.
The late issue pictorial end flap box is complete and bright. Often found heavily worn – this example has fared better than many. (These later end flap boxes often suffer from extensive wear due to the comparatively flimsy nature of the card in relation to the weight of the truck enclosed inside). Couple of tiny tears. Few grubby marks. Period penned pricing on the inside of both large end flaps (1974). Period shop price label.
A very scarce issue.
