Diecast Vintage Meccano Dinky Supertoys early model Bedford Pullmore Car Transporter (number 982) with detachable Loading Ramp (number 794). Made in England. Original boxes.
First issued as Number 582 in 1953, then re-numbered as 982 in 1954. Discontinued in 1964.
The bodywork of both the Transporter and Loading Ramp are in very good condition given their age (1954), as is their original paintwork and the wheels of the Transporter - with their original smooth rubber tyres and straight axles.
The original blue and white striped Supertoys box for the Transporter is showing wear and tear; one end of the box lid has become detached, although still present. The original yellow card sleeve for the Loading Ramp is in good condition.
Please study the photographs provided to make your own assessment regarding the condition of the items offered for sale.
The Transporter has a mid blue early model cab (i.e. without window panes), with black and silver lights and radiator. Mid blue hubs to wheels. Light blue ramps and sides. Good clear decals to sides and rear state: Dinky Toys Delivery Service. The rear ramp secures and drops down; has a number 20 sign on the outside.
The base plate of theTransporter reads: Dinky Toys, Bedford, Meccano Ltd. Made in England and Pullmore Car Transporter 982.
The top of the tinplate Loading Ramp reads: Dinky Toys Made in England Meccano Ltd. and Loading Ramp for Pullmore Car Transporter 794. The rear of the card sleeve states: Realistic loading of the upper level of the Pullmore Car Transporter (Dinky Toys No. 982) is made possible by use of this accessory.
This is a private sale, from a pet and smoke free home. The Transporter and Ramp have been in my family since being purchased new in 1954.
I would prefer the buyer to collect, and pay cash upon collection please. However, if essential, I would be willing to send the items to a location within the United Kingdom, at the buyer's own risk, for an additional £12.50. Regret no returns accepted. Thank you.
