Dinky Toys 504 Foden Mobilgas Tanker 1st issue


Supplied from a Somerset shop owners estate in September 2022 who retained some shop stock Dinky Toys dating from 1953-1961.
Believed never to have been in circulation and where I have viewed and selected around 100 stock for sale. No touch-ups noted except a factory touch to a Weetabix Van which is known to have regularly occurred. If you want to know what is there just give me a call.

This Model.

This is the scarce 1st version of the 2nd Cab Foden Mobilgas Tanker with red filler caps. The model is red all over including the ST wheels. It has grey Supertoys tyres. A red painted tow hook with black metal ladder running the full tanker length and down one side. It comes in the 1st type blue box with orange label.

Light tested and original.

Item Condition

Excellent Plus - Some obvious markings, a major chip or several smaller. Any touch-ins are always clearly stated.
(All items graded out of 5)

Item Condition

A shop stock item stored away  over 60 years with beautiful bright paint work.  with occasional small marks. The paint work and transfers are near mint plus.

However, I have downgraded this model as it has suffered some areas of rust.

Along the top front seam of the tanker by the ladder is a 3 mm length of corrosion. The tow hook and the metal bracket supporting the spare tyre below, have some rust. The grey tyres have now hardened over time but are in very nice condition.

The model presents very well due to the paintwork and transfers being very nice. The ladder is rust free.




Box Condition
Box Condition

Very Nearly Mint - Could be slight wear, neat pricing and shop price label.
(All items graded out of 5)

Box Condition

An even better blue box, with no sun fading or box base scuffs. Minor grubby age marks to the label only.
