Dinky Toys 355, Lunar Roving Vehicle.

This is a Dinky Toys No 355, NASA Lunar Roving Vehicle, seen here in the slightly rarer ‘tall’ blister packaging.
With the Apollo Moon Landings capturing the public imagination during the seventies, Dinky produced the Sea King Capsule recovery helicopter and this, the Lunar Rover. This model was four wheel steering, and could be directed using a small white capped lever between the two astronauts.
This model was produced between 1972 and 1975.
