This is a Dinky No 287, Ford transit Police Accident unit. The Mk1 Transit was an iconic vehicle of it’s day and dinky made three castings of it in total. The version pictured is the first casting. It is slightly smaller than later versions and has a sliding drivers door, jewelled headlights and twin opening rear doors, rather than a single lifting rear door. The transit was a big success for Dinky as well as Ford.
This first casting Mk1 Police Transit was produced from 1967 to 1971. A second casting version was produced between 1971 and 1974.
