Dinky Toys 972 20-Ton ‘Coles’ lorry Mounted Crane


Here is an early 1st series ‘Coles’ Crane in outstanding condition. A model tucked away for many years, which has barely seen the light of day. A great memory for me, as I had one like this as a child. Finished in upper yellow section over orange cab and chassis with yellow ST wheels and original grey tyres. It has both driver and operator in blue.

Fully light tested and I can confirm, no recognised added touch-ins.

Item Condition

Fully working with original stringing with two shiny crank handles and shiny hook. Superb ‘Coles’ transfer in black to the rear. Such a detailed model and vulnerable to chipping where metal meets metal. This model has a day one appearance and is probably as it left the factory. An occasional mark but certainly the best I have ever seen. The base is shiny and spotless. The grey tyres are nice and now hardened with no flats.

This is a superb example and would be hard to find much better.
