Item Condition

This beautiful and sought after model, totally original and with no touch ups has a few marks only. Study the pictures carefully you will find this has to be one of the best remaining examples on the market today. Lovely shiny radiator surround with deep blue washed wheels all round. The front mudguards (a vulnerable area for damage)  have only a little marking on the left side. Full transfers are a joy.

This is the first example I have ever offered in the yellow ‘Hornby Trains’ livery which has to be one of the most sought after advertising early vans.


An outstanding and rare example of this beautiful van. No evidence of corrosion or damage.

A great opportunity for the Pre war Dinky collector specialist.

None. Sold from a trade box of six different advertising vans. I believe the current world record sale for Dinky is a trade box of these 1st series delivery vans.
