Dinky Toys 924 Aveling Barford Centaur Dump Truck
Aveling Barford Centaur Dump Truck by Dinky Toys, No. 924. DEEPER YELLOW & SCARLET RED issue. Cast wheels. Very near mint/boxed. With packing ring & card packing. From The Reference Collection. QDT starting bid £125. Please note that QDT apply 12.5% buyer's commission.
One of the weightiest Dinky Trucks around. This is a superb example, measuring over 18cms long x 10cms wide approx. including the tipping lever.
This Aveling Barford Centaur Dump Truck is in all original, very close to mint condition.
A more difficult find in this deep yellow and scarlet red colour finish, with silver cast wheels.
Presents well. Complete lettering on both sides (minor ruffling to one of the paper labels). Complete chevron label head-on. Tipping action works very well (simulated hydraulic action which would surely never pass safety regulations nowadays!).
Comes with inner wrap-around card packing piece and original card packing ring.
Box is notably colourful and crisp with all end flaps intact. Small puncture has pressed back into place.
