Click on any photo to see a larger version...


This model is the Dinky 920-G-1 Guy Warrior Van in Red and Yellow "Heinz" livery. This is Code 3 item, hand repainted and using third party reproduction Heinz decals with ketchup bottle.

The model features a red cast metal cab and chassis with a yellow cast rear body with opening doors and black tin base. The grille and headlights are picked out in silver paint and there is no glazing in the windows. The rear body is dark yellow with the Heinz 57 Varieties decal in dark blue with red ketchup bottle on both sides.

All wheels are yellow "Supertoy" hubs with separate black rubber tyre. There is a spare wheel on the chassis.

The base plate is actually part of the chassis casting and it is black painted metal, possibly a third part replacement as it is unmarked with the usual Dinky markings.

The original model was issued between 1959 and 1960. I do not know when this Code 3 item was made.
