Dinky Toys 028c Manchester Guardian Delivery Van 1st Issue


Here is an original and very hard issue to find in any condition, a 28 series 1st issue delivery van, in the black cab & chassis and dark red box section with cerise washed metal wheels in ‘The Manchester Guardian advertising on each box side in gold lettering.  Any 28 series van is a difficult find but in this condition and rare to come to the market.

What an opportunity for the connoisseur Dinky collector. The best I have seen in 40 years of collecting. Fully light checked for touch-ins and none identified.

Item Condition

This beautiful model, totally original with no touch ups is in very near mint condition. The radiator surround has some pitting to the front. There is hardly a paint chip to be found. Quite remarkable for a model now eighty five years old. The wheels are very nice and from below like new other than the axles showing a little rusting. Outstanding piece. No evidence of corrosion or damage.
