Dinky Toys 501 1st Cab Foden 8 Wheel Wagon


I am now making available for sale my whole Foden collection built up and constantly upgraded over the last 25 years.

Here is a superb example of the 1st cab Foden Wagon in red cab and chassis and a taupe back with silver cab flashes.
This was the last colour run for the 1st Cab version which has a mount block to house a large un-painted rear tow hook and has tank slots which were both not introduced after October 1948. It continues to have no casting support for the chain posts underneath as this was not introduced until January 1952. There is a spare tyre mounted to the chassis by a correct silver nut and bolt. Please note that a black nut and bolt were not issued for any 1st cab model. Finally as a later release it has the black grip original tyres which are starting to harden with no flats and a full ’20mph’ transfer on the rear left wheel arch.

Item Condition

The model is superb in appearance but has a couple of discreet touch ins around the cab hard to see with the naked eye.
A very nice example. The wheels, tyres and base are all very good also.
It has shiny axle rods and a nice shiny silver bed screw and silver nut and bolt below.
So often Foden & Guy lorries as premium pieces can come with touch up and repainted areas. This model has the most minor touch ins to the cab section only.

A very nice presentable model which will not disappoint.
Fully light tested with minor touch ins around the cab section only.

Excellent Plus - Minor edge wear, starter tears or heavy pricing. Could also be graffiti or tape residue, but good overall.

Box Condition

The correct early brown box is very nice, with a correct red and white top and side label. There is minor age grubbiness now but it is a strong box. There is a taupe coloured blotch to the label end to signify the colour inside and the base has ‘M42in a circle in blue’ printed on the base.
