Dinky Toys 945 AEC Fuel Tanker
A.E.C. Fuel Tanker 'ESSO' by Dinky Toys, No. 945. Near mint plus/boxed. End flap box with card packing piece. With deep grey gantry and manhole covers. Blue interior and metal hubcap wheels. Version WITH 'Tiger' label. From The Marc Mulvale Collection.
In complete, clean and fresh condition, this Fuel Tanker has a bright blue interior, tinplate hub caps, bright jewelled headlights, both hosepipes, grey gantry and all six grey manhole covers intact.
Version with ‘Tiger’ label at the rear of the tank (small area of age discolouration).
Esso paper labels are bright and complete (light wear).
Little of the original factory glue on the headlight surrounds. Barely a mark to the paint finish.
The attractive end flap picture box is a more unusual find and generally more desirable than the later bubble pack issues. Bright intact card shows little wear.
With card packing piece.
