Dinky Toys 502 1st Cab Foden Flat truck

Description

Supplied from my own collection.

This is one of the rarest of many Foden variations. Missing from many superb specialist collections this is a 1st series cab flat truck in denim blue/chassis with red flat bed and RED ridge wheels & cab flashes. Possibly the first colour release in the 2nd production phase which ran from 1948-52 and, if found, usually comes with blue wheels (still very scarce) this model is one of my most cherished Fodens. It has a mould block at the rear and houses a metal un-painted tow hook. The red ridged wheels have the correct black grip ST tyres.
Also there are no tank slots in the chassis which was not introduced until October 1948. 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.

A very rare model and colour variation especially with red and not blue wheels and a premium model in any condition. This is a superb example and must be one of the best in collections today.
Fully light tested and free of any known interference.

Item Condition

This Foden model is in superb near mint-very, near mint condition. The flatbed is particularly nice with only the most minor of marks. The rest of the model has an occasional small mark but displays no sign of playwear.  The paint finish has a pristine appearance and will look wonderful in any collection. The 20mph transfer is complete, the top screw and chassis silver nut and bolt are nice and shiny. There are no flat tyres and the base looks superb.

A prime piece what an opportunity for the discerning collector.

So often Foden & Guy lorries as premium pieces, can come with touch up and repainted areas. This is an honest model, free of any known touch ins.

Box Condition

Excellent Plus - Minor edge wear, starter tears or heavy pricing. Could also be graffiti or tape residue, but good overall.
(All items graded out of 5)

Box Condition

The correct early brown box is very nice with a correct red and white label to top and side. The end label has a small area of defacing probably through a price label being removed and minor stain marks. It is still bright in colour. The correct ‘B’ for blue is on the end tab and the matching base code of ‘M42’ in blue circle to the box base.
