PRODUCED BY DINKY IN ENGLAND CIRCA 1973-80

YOU ARE BUYING A DINKY TOYS MODEL No. 612 "COMMANDO JEEP" WITH PLASTIC DRIVER AND AERIAL FINAL "PROTOTYPE VERSION" WITH PLASTIC BASE MOULDING WHICH INCORPORATES FRONT GRILL AND TOW HOOK, WITH REVISED DIE-CAST BODY SHELL WHICH INCORPORATES THE 3 "JERRICANS", SOLID "ROUNDED" AXLES. IN MINT CONDITION.

I BELIEVE THIS IS THE PROTOTYPE PLASTIC MODEL WAS PRODUCED IN SMALL NUMBER'S IN LATE 1979 -EARLY 1980 IN A ATTEMPT TO CUT COSTS BY DINKY! - THIS SEEMS IDENTICAL TO EBAY ITEM 190642999072

THE "HANGING DISPLAY" BOX IS IN, IN MY OPINION VERY GOOD OR EXCELLENT CONDITION - SOME SLIGHT MISSHAPE IN THE CLEAR PLASTIC AND SOME SLIGHT WEAR ON THE EDGES OF THE BOX - NO TEARS.

I'M NO EXPERT ON THIS, BUT I'LL ENDEAVOUR TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS.

THANKS FOR LOOKING
