Dinky Toys 984 & 985 Code 3 Transporters

One of the more popular Code 3 conversion’s I’ve made is for the Land Rover transporter. I started off with a 989 set that was in need of restoration, and a picture I found on a greeting’s card which bore a striking similarity. It was a success and I went on to make more, pairing them up with Mersey Tunnel Land Rover’s to provide a reasonable load.


Another popular ‘revamp’, was to turn the standard red Auto Transporter into it’s rarer and more colourful ‘Continental’ version. The European version never came with a trailer, so the colour scheme for that simply matched the truck.

The finished set was complemented with a specially designed Code 3 box, which set it off a treat.
