Dinky Toys 978 Bedford TK Refuse Wagon
Bedford TK Refuse Wagon by Dinky Toys, No. 978. Very, very near mint/boxed. Lime green cab issue, mid-grey back, deeper grey shutters, cast lime green roof box, WHITE interior, green plastic wheels. Orange & black chevrons. With both original BLACK bins, including the lids. From The Reference Collection.
A long production for this Dinky model (1964-80) in a variety of colour finishes and packaging. This version is a more unusual find with a bright lime green cab and roof rack, grey tipping back, metal hubs, darkest brown chassis. Complete with perfect labels on both sides and two dustbins with lids.
The large, clean and bright window box has an unpunched header card and smooth original cellophane. Two very small areas of glue residue (probably from old price labels).
